The United States finally broke below the 1,000 deaths per day figure on Saturday, following a concerning four day trend where daily deaths in the country we’re over the 1,000 mark. Saturday’s total daily death count came in at 900 as per Johns Hopkins data, while total daily new cases arrived at 65,490, a decline from 73,715 new cases confirmed on Friday.
While a decline in both daily deaths and new cases is a positive, it should be noted that weekend data has had a history of being lower as a result of data not always being collectively as efficiently on weekends. Although declining, the trend itself in terms of daily deaths still appears to be on the rise based on graphs provided by WorldOMeter, as can be seen below. Daily new cases however, based on the 7 day moving average, might be currently in the process of flat-lining, however more data will need to be collected yet to be sure.
It should be noted that there are slight discrepancies in data between the two sources of data, however it is marginal. The CDC has yet to release data for Saturday, July 26.
