U.S. COVID Cases, Deaths Spike as Delta Variant Gains Steam: Report

As the delta variant tightens its grip on the U.S., the numbers of new daily coronavirus cases and deaths crept upward again, hitting levels not seen in more than a month.

At least 23,549 new coronavirus cases were recorded Tuesday — the most since 27,747 on May 27, MarketWatch reported, citing a New York Times tracker.

The U.S. daily death toll hit 714 on Tuesday — the first time it went over the 700 mark since May 28, when 759 deaths were recorded.

The seven-day average of new daily cases rose to 12,914 on Tuesday, up from 11,797 on Monday, and was above 14% where it was two weeks ago. The seven-day average of deaths rose to 250 on Tuesday from 194 the previous day, but was down 19% from two weeks ago.

The rise in infections and deaths comes as the delta variant accounts for 51.7% of new cases, as was reported through July 3, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
