The U.S. passed more than 600,000 confirmed COVID-19 deaths on Tuesday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, marking another pandemic milestone on the same day that major states such as California and New York lifted their remaining restrictions.

Deaths have declined dramatically in recent weeks, reaching the lowest point since March 2020, according to The Wall Street Journal. COVID-19 fatalities peaked in mid-January at about 3,300 daily deaths and then dropped below 1,000 deaths in early April. The seven-day average fell below 500 at the end of May and is now hovering around 300, according to CDC data.
