Due to changes at the CDC, weekly cases are no longer updated.

For deaths, I’m currently using 4 weeks ago for “now”, since the most recent three weeks will be revised significantly.

Hospitalizations have almost quadrupled from a low of 5,150 in June 2023, however, they have declined from around 30,000 in early 2024.

This graph shows the weekly (columns) number of deaths reported.

Weekly deaths have more than quadrupled from a low of 485 in early July.  Still weekly deaths are far below the weekly peak of 26,000 in January 2021.  Weekly deaths will likely decline soon.
