As the global COVID-19 virus nears a full year since it first began wreaking havoc in the U.S., active cases are beginning to show a decline.
The virus’ spread made its impact in waves, the international COVID-19 tracking website, Worldometers, showing that it was not mid-January that active cases of COVID-19 started a downturn.
Active cases continue to decline as of Monday, Feb. 22, data beginning to display a strong arch.
The count of those currently infected with COVID-19 in the U.S. peaked on Jan. 31 at 9,932,708. As of today, Monday, Feb. 22, that number has declined to 9,281,124.
