Coronavirus cases and hospitalizations have been on a major decline since their peak numbers from the middle of January, according to the COVID Tracking Project.
There were 71,844 new cases reported on Sunday, a nearly 19,000 drop from the number of cases reported on Saturday, according to the tracking project. In January, the number of new daily cases reached higher than 225,000, the health data showed.
“The case declines that we’ve seen have been massive since mid-January, falling far more than the number of tests reported,” the COVID Tracking Project tweeted.
Hospitalizations have also taken a considerable dip over the last couple of weeks, according to the tracking project. There were 67,023 people hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms, the tracking project said.
Last month, there were over 130,000 hospitalized with the virus, according to health data.
