The United States continues to win the battle against COVID-19 as cases and hospitalizations continue to drop dramatically across the country.

That figure is a 23 percent decrease from the rolling average of 137,270 reported four weeks ago.

DailyMail.com’s analysis of the data shows that more than half of US states, 36 in total, and the District of Columbia have either seen a decline in Covid infections in the past week or have remained stable.

The number of hospitalizations has also fallen to 70,153, a drop of 30.5 per cent from the 101,000 patients reported at the same time last month. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

On the other hand, the overall number of deaths due to Kovid has increased, but the pace of new deaths continues to decline.

A total of 2,110 virus-related deaths were recorded on Monday and the seven-day rolling average of 1,929, an increase of 23 per cent from the 1,561 average deaths recorded a month earlier.

The growth rate of new deaths is slower than the same time last week when deaths rose 57 percent over the four-week period and 91 percent two weeks ago.

Experts say the mortality rate is a lagging indicator and often doesn’t start to decline until three or four weeks after cases and hospitalizations occur.

This means that the pace of new deaths will continue to decline and the total number will also decline.

Also, not every state reports Covid deaths every day, so it is likely that this figure includes deaths that were not reported in the first week.

It comes as Florida continues to decline in former COVID-19 hotspots such as California, with the latter becoming the first state to report ‘moderate’ transmission of the virus since June.

More than half of US states, 36 overall, and the District of Columbia have seen a decline or steady state in Covid infections over the past week.

These declines appear to follow a familiar two-month cycle since the pandemic began in early 2020 and cases and deaths increased for nearly two months before the decline.

Initial explanations – such as the flu-like virus being seasonal or compliance with wearing masks and increasing and decreasing social distancing – have not stopped.

However, more logical explanations include that as people have contracted COVID-19 over the past two months, the virus is (slowly) moving out to infect people.

One type may need only eight weeks to spread throughout the community before it subsides.

Experts say they are cautiously optimistic as infections and hospitalizations continue to decline and the fourth wave is looming.

“What this indicates is that we are now on the downside of this latest surge, this delta boom,” said Dr. Jorge Rodriguez, a viral researcher and a private practice physician in Los Angeles. CNN.

He said it was important for Americans to make sure they don’t get overconfident and stop taking mitigation measures like masks and social distancing.

‘We can’t get overconfident. Every time we do and we defend ourselves… we get another bounce with another version.’

‘So yes, things are better’ but it’s not over yet.

As the pandemic continues to rage, former hotspots such as California and Florida are seeing a drop in their COVID infections.

California becomes first state to not record ‘high’ or ‘good enough’ Virus transmission in the country, according to the CDC.

A colour-coded map shows that the Golden State colored yellow denotes ‘moderate’ transmission of COVID-19, meaning a rate of 50 new infections per 100,000.

Every other state is colored red, indicating ‘high’ transmission, or orange indicating ‘enough’ transmission.

As of Tuesday, the state is reporting a seven-day case rate of 41.3 infections per 100,000.

Data from the CDC shows California is recording a seven-day rolling average of 4,023 cases, the lowest since mid-July and a substantial drop from 11,598…
