Coronavirus Fading? Infections Stabilize Across U.S. as Cases Recede, Deaths Remain Low in Sunbelt


The seven-day rolling average number of coronavirus infections in most of the Sunbelt, including states health analysts deemed new hotspots in recent weeks, appear to have plateaued as of Monday evening and even began to drop, a Breitbart News analysis revealed.
