The US has, in recent weeks, experienced a large uptick in COVID-19 cases — likely in large part because of the more-transmissible Delta variant becoming predominant. The extent to which this increase in cases will translate to a comparable increase in deaths is of interest given the higher vaccination rate of older age groups.
The 7-day moving average of daily COVID-19 deaths last exceeded 1000 on 13 March 2021.
Will the US have more than 1000 daily COVID-19 deaths (7-day rolling average) before 1 January 2022?
This question resolves positively if at any point between 20 July 2021 and 1 January 2022 the 7-day rolling average of confirmed COVID-19 deaths is greater than 1000. The source will be CDC's official count of COVID-19 deaths. Make sure the "Daily Deaths" view is selected.
