As of Tuesday evening, more than 6,916,400 people in the United States have been infected with the coronavirus and at least 200,600 have died, according to a New York Times database.

Iran Press/America: Case numbers remain persistently high across much of the country, though reports of new cases have dropped considerably since late July when the country averaged well over 60,000 per day.

States in the Northeast, where infections were highest this spring, have reported relatively low case numbers for months. Some places that suffered the most in early summer, including Arizona, Florida, and California, have since seen steep declines. But some of that progress has been offset by rising case numbers on the Great Plains and in some Southern states.

Deaths, though still well below their peak spring levels, averaged around 850 per day in mid-September, far more than were reported in early July.

In late February, there were just a few dozen known cases in the United States, most of them linked to travel. But by summer, the virus had torn through every state, infecting more people than the combined populations of Louisiana and Wyoming. The national death toll exceeded 195,000, more than the population of Mobile, Ala. And after glimmers of progress in the late spring, cases surged to new records in July.

Globally, over 31.780,000 million have been infected, of which, nearly 23,400,00 million have recovered so far. At least 975,000 people have succumbed to the virus so far.
