Over 200k US COVID daily cases by 2022


Related question on Metaculus:

Will the US have more than 100,000 new daily COVID-19 cases before January 1, 2022?

The US has, in recent weeks, experienced a large uptick in COVID-19 cases, primarily due to the emergence of a new variant, named "Delta".

Will the US have more than 200,000 daily COVID-19 cases (7-day rolling average) before January 1, 2022?

This question resolves positively if at any point between 2021-07-01 to 2022-01-01 the 7-day rolling average of confirmed COVID-19 cases is greater than 200,000. The source will be CDC's official count of Coronavirus cases, unless Metaculus Admins determine there is a significantly superior source of data.
