United States, as the spread of the delta mutation has slowed, both the number of infections and deaths have significantly decreased. However, there are still concerns about the spread of the virus because the vaccination rate has not increased, and only 13% of the respondents said that they would be able to return to daily life within six months.

average number of new coronavirus cases in the United States for 7 days was 89,000, down 24% from two weeks ago.

Although the death toll has decreased by 10%, more than 1,800 people are still dying from the coronavirus every day.

According to a survey conducted by the internet media Axios and the polling agency Ipsos, only 13% of the respondents said they would return to their pre-COVID life within six months.

This is a drop of more than half from 36% in the survey in June.

As disappointment over the Biden administration's response to the coronavirus grows, Democrats are even raising pessimism about next year's midterm elections.
