State of the virus
Update for February 10
- Cases, hospitalizations and deaths are all down in recent weeks, though a slight uptick in test positivity suggests that this progress could soon end.
- Already, the South is emerging as something of a hotspot. Alabama and Louisiana currently have the country’s highest per-capita case rates, and reported cases have risen by more than 25 percent in both states over the past two weeks.
- Deaths remain persistently high despite recent improvements. On average, more than 3,000 people are dying of Covid in the U.S. each week.
