Nationally, coronavirus cases are falling from their July peaks and some hard-hit states are showing signs of improvement, a hopeful sign even as the country deals with about 1,000 COVID-19 deaths every day. However, as stated in this article by The Hill, the positive news is still dwarfed by the negative reality of the pandemic’s hold over the country.

Though the situation is not as bad as it was in July, when cases peaked around 70,000 per day, the virus is still circulating around the United States at a very high level, with around 40,000 new cases per day, according to the COVID Tracking Project. And while some other countries are now seeing resurgences, the U.S. is faring far worse than the rest of the developed world. The European Union, for example, with about 100 million more people than the U.S., has well less than half the daily new cases.
