This graph shows the daily (columns) and 7-day average (line) of positive tests reported.

New cases are at record levels. It appears likely hospitalizations will exceed the previous 7-day average record of 124,031 a year ago.
Fortunately, deaths are still well below the previous 7-day average record of 3,421 in January 2021.
