July 25 COVID-19 Test Results

The US is now reporting over 700,000 tests per day. Based on the experience of other countries, the percent positive needs to be well under 5% to really push down new infections, so the US still needs to increase the number of tests per day significantly (or take actions to push down the number of new infections).

There were 797,589 test results reported over the last 24 hours. This is a new record.

There were 65,413 positive tests.

This was the 5th consecutive day with over 1,000 deaths. See the graph on US Daily Deaths here.
