U.S. Covid-19 deaths appear to finally be slowing, following a broad and steep decline in both newly reported cases and hospitalizations in recent weeks.

While daily deaths remain near record highs, the average number of coronavirus-related fatalities has broadly fallen in recent days, dropping from a seven-day average of 3,172 on Feb. 1 to 2,765 on Wednesday, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of Johns Hopkins University data.

Hospitalizations also dropped to the lowest level in nearly three months, with more than 74,000 Covid-19 patients in the hospital Thursday, according to the Covid Tracking Project.

Vaccinations, meanwhile, appear to be increasing, with about two million shots administered Thursday, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Supplies, however, remain limited. President Biden said Thursday the U.S. reached deals to purchase 200 million more doses.
