New Data Shows the Third COVID-19 Wave Has Arrived
The U.S. has seen infection numbers rising over the last few weeks, and has recorded more than 221,000 COVID-19 associated deaths since the start of the pandemic.
The third wave of COVID-19 cases appears to be starting to fill hospital beds in the Dakotas, Mississippi, Montana and Wisconsin. Still, the overall U.S. death rate appears to be holding steady.
COVID-19 was causing about 2,400 deaths per day during the first wave, which peaked in April, and about 1,300 deaths per day during the second wave, which peaked in August, according to death data compiled by The COVID Tracking Project at The Atlantic.
