An article posted on Healthline today examines the areas where coronavirus cases continue to rise in the United States, as well as describing some areas where cases appear to be plateauing or even possibly decreasing (such as here in L.A., CA).
An excerpt from the article in Healthline explains about cases,
"Rhode Island and Hawaii were the highest with spikes of 85 percent each. In terms of sheer numbers, Florida, California, and Texas are still leading the way. Florida had the most reported new cases with more than 63,000. However, that was a 14 percent decrease over the previous week, according to the Reuters graph. California recorded another 59,000 new cases this past week, an 9 percent increase over the previous week.
There are concerns over the rising number of cases in the Central Valley. Texas had the third highest number of new cases with more than 56,000 this past week, but that figure was 2 percent lower than the previous week. All three states recorded case declines for the second week in a row.
Arizona also continued its downward trend. The state reported 16,000 new cases, a decrease of 11 percent from the week before.
A number of states in the South are still experiencing a high number of new COVID-19 cases.
Georgia had the fourth highest number of new cases with 25,000, an increase of 2 percent.
Tennessee reported more than 15,000 new cases, a decrease of 1 percent from the prior week.
North Carolina had more than 12,000 new cases and South Carolina recorded more than 11,000 new infections. Both were decreases from the week before."
