This is a brief case update. The US is still increasing in new cases, but the number of new cases is slowing. Several states appear to be past the peak new cases are now headed down, including Louisiana, Texas and Vermont. New COVID deaths in the US are on the rise, but are still far lower then during last wave. It will take several weeks to know how many new deaths we’ll see, since new deaths trail new cases by between 1 and 4 weeks.
New cases in California and San Diego continue to go down for the second week. New deaths are starting to creep up for both regions, but remain relatively low.
