  • Weekly COVID-19 mortality reaches 3-year low in US

    The US recorded 1,706 COVID-19 deaths for the week ending March 15, the lowest weekly death toll since March 25, 2020, according to the CDC. COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations also continue to drop nationwide, with weekly infections falling to the lowest level in more than a year and a half, though experts say the figures are probably significantly higher given widespread use of home tests.
