May 14th COVID-19 New Cases, Hospitalizations; 7-Day Average Cases Lowest Since June 25, 2020

Personal comment: At the recent pace of improvement, it is possible to achieve all 3 of my criteria before July 4th.   Hopefully everyone is part of the solution and is getting vaccinated!

According to the CDC, on Vaccinations. Total administered: 268,438,666, as of yesterday: 266,596,486. Day: 1.84 million.  (U.S. Capacity is around 4 million per day)
1) 59.1% of the population over 18 has had at least one dose (70% goal by July 4th).
2) 120.3 million Americans are fully vaccinated (160 million goal by July 4th)

Note: I'll stop posting this daily once all three of these criteria are met:
1) 70% of the population over 18 has had at least one dose of vaccine, and
2) new cases are under 5,000 per day, and
3) hospitalizations are below 3,000.

And check out COVID Act Now to see how each state is doing. 

Almost 8,000 US deaths were reported so far in May due to COVID.

This graph shows the daily (columns) 7 day average (line) of positive tests reported.

This data is from the CDC.

The 7-day average is 34,369, down from 35,474 yesterday, and down sharply from the recent peak of 69,881 on April 13, 2021. This is the lowest since June 25, 2020.

The second graph shows the number of people hospitalized.

COVID-19 HospitalizedThis data is also from the CDC.

The CDC cautions that due to reporting delays, the area in grey will probably increase.

The current 7-day average is 29,588, down from 30,244 reported yesterday, but still above the post-summer surge low of 23,000.
