A nurse in Pennsylvania is testing a resident for the new coronavirus.
However, on Friday and Saturday, the number of new cases per day drops below 10.
Nonetheless, Dr. Rochelle Varensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that the latest figures, including an increase of 1500 to 3500 deaths per day, are 2.5 times the number of deaths recorded in the United States last summer.
She said on the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) "Meet the Media" program, "It is encouraging to see these trends decline, but they are falling from a very high position."
Varensky said that variants of the new coronavirus discovered in other countries and in the United States could cause more cases and more deaths.
According to data from Johns Hopkins University, the United States has recorded more than 2760 million new coronavirus cases and more than 48.4 deaths.
