Washington, DC: A study by Johns Hopkins University shows that the spread of corona virus in the United States has dropped by more than 50 percent.
The prevalence of the deadly delta virus was highest in September, but has since slowed, the report said.
The worst-hit states are Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, South Carolina and Tennessee, down more than 40 percent from two months ago. Arkansas and Louisiana are down 75 percent.
The report also found that the relatively low-vaccination states of Alaska, Michigan and Monal recorded an average increase of 85, 63 and 56 percent, respectively.
Authorities have warned that the possibility of an increase in the spread of the virus cannot be ruled out as crowds gather in homes as well as in closed halls as the cold weather intensifies. In any case, it is reassuring to know that the rate of spread in the United States is declining.
