Here’s some great news that you likely didn’t know.
Despite a continuing spike in COVID-19 positive cases, deaths have continued to fall and have now remained below 300 deaths per day for three days in a row. This is the first time this has happened since the pandemic began back in March.
The number of COVID-19 positive cases started increasing one month ago on June 8, 2020. Additionally, the U.S. hit a new high of 57,209 positive tests in one day on July 3.
However, despite the increase in cases, there were just 273 deaths due to COVID-19 on July 4, 212 on July 5 and 244 on July 6.
This is encouraging news. Deaths due to the coronavirus have fallen a striking 92% since reaching a high of 2,701 on May 6.
Now, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the COVID-19 virus is on the verge of losing its epidemic status because the recent death rates have been so low.
The Daily Citizen has previously reported twice about how the media is misreporting and distorting the facts on the coronavirus.
Despite a recent spate of good news regarding the pandemic including declining death rates, much of the media’s reporting on the pandemic has been negative.
A quick google search for “Texas hospitals overwhelmed” revealed a litany of news articles claiming Texas hospitals are about to be overwhelmed due to COVID-19. However, numerous Texas hospital CEOs have recently gone on the record to state that they are not concerned about their hospitals being overwhelmed.
The Daily Citizen is not aware of a single mainstream news outlet that has reported on the three-day streak of there being under 300 COVID-19 deaths per day as of publishing time.
