U.S. Daily Coronavirus Toll Takes Steep Drop

The United States’ coronavirus cases are on the decline.

Approximately 64,938 new cases were reported Sunday — a marked drop from the previous day’s total of 83,321, according to data from a Johns Hopkins University tracker.

Sunday’s total was the sixth time in the past week that the daily toll fell below 100,000. Prior to this month, the U.S. hadn’t recorded fewer than 100,000 daily cases since Nov. 2. The toll hit a record-high of 300,282 on Jan. 2.

But health officials warn it’s much too soon to begin easing safety measures such as face masks and social distancing, particularly with newer, more contagious variants of the virus now circulating through the country.

The U.S. currently has reported roughly 27.7 million coronavirus cases and 486,000 relate deaths since the outset of the pandemic — both tops globally — according to the Johns Hopkins tracker.

As of Monday, the country has administered approximately 52.9 million of its 70 million available coronavirus vaccine doses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
