Coronavirus tally: U.S. cases at lowest level since late April but are up at least 10% in most northeastern states


U.S. known cases of COVID are continuing to ease and now stand at their lowest level since late April, although the true tally is likely higher given how many people are testing at home, where the data are not being collected. The daily average for new cases stood at 44,484 on Tuesday, according to a New York Times tracker, down 22% from two weeks ago. Cases are rising in most Northeastern states by 10% of more, while cases in the West are rising in Montana, Washington and Oregon. The daily average for hospitalizations was down 12% at 27,334, while the daily average for deaths is down 8% to 393. Globally, the confirmed case tally rose above 619.2 million on Wednesday, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins, while the death toll is above 6.55 million with the U.S. leading the world with 96.5 million cases and 1,060,428 deaths.
