While the U.S. has made great progress in the battle against COVID-19, there are concerns that the progress could be slowed by pandemic fatigue, the spread of virus variants and the relaxation of mask mandates and other preventive measures. 

According to Patch, daily U.S. coronavirus cases peaked around mid-January but have since declined about 79%. 

The country is averaging about 1,000 deaths per day, which is the lowest amount since early November, according to Patch. More than 540,000 people have died from the coronavirus in the U.S. since the pandemic began, Patch continues. 

In New Jersey, 3,869,393 total doses of the vaccine been administered as of March 25, with New Jersey ranking sixth nationally for percent of adults who have received at least one dose, Patch reports. 

Health officials are cautioning that while the U.S. has made significant progress in vaccinating people, there is still much more work to be done.
