No state has reported a seven-day average of more than 10,000 new COVID-19 infections for the first time this year, data shows.
The promising sign Tuesday comes as every state has seen steady declines in infections since January, according to the COVID Tracking Project.
Texas, California, and New York are grappling with some of the country’s highest case numbers — but none of them recorded more than a seven-day average of more than 9,000 new infections, the data shows.
Texas leads the country with an average of 8,963 cases for that period, while California reported 8,209 cases and 7,972 new infections were recorded in New York, according to the report.
Meanwhile, Wyoming and Hawaii experienced some of the lowest numbers in the nation.
