Case / Death Rates & Mortality

A sign of progress is the average number of cases & deaths per day dropping. Note that cases slowing can indicate a slowing infection rate, slowing testing rate, or a combination of these factors.
Higher mortality rates can indicate strained medical resources, low testing rates, or a combination of these factors.
