While stories of the increasing number of infections have dominated front page headlines, the number of deaths due to COVID19 has actually declined, according to reporting by Breitbart News.
The COVID Tracking Project states that “COVID-19 deaths continue to fall in the United States.” However, according to Breitbart, “the number of cases is up slightly over the past seven days and that they are watching closely five states where current hospitalizations have increased over the past two weeks.”

Other data shows that hospitalizations are also down. “There were 22,639 current hospitalizations in the United States on Monday among the 42 states that keep and report that data,” according to the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management COVID-19 Hospitalization Tracking Project.
