The number of new infections has decreased, so many testing sites have been relatively empty.

After months of nightmare, the United States sees a light in the dark tunnel of the coronavirus pandemic.

For weeks now, the country has experienced a notable decrease in almost all the indicators that account for the evolution of covid-19.

The total number of reported cases has fallen by more than 57% since the beginning of January and only during the last seven days, new infections were reduced by 22% compared to the previous week, while hospitalizations decreased by almost 16% and deaths in 3.5%.

And although the number of tests that are carried out has also been reduced, the experts are optimistic and point out that the fall is not linked to the problems to do more tests.
