Coronavirus tally: U.S. average daily case tally down 24% from two weeks ago

U.S. known cases of COVID are continuing to ease and now stand at their lowest level since early May, 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 68,312 on Monday, according to a New York Times tracker, down 24% from two weeks ago. The daily average for hospitalizations was down 10% at 34,404 while the daily average for deaths is down 20% to 382. Globally, the confirmed case tally rose above 609.2 million on Tuesday, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins, while the death toll is above 6.51 million with the U.S. leading the world with 95.3 million cases and 1,050,767 deaths.
