The charts below are from Our World in Data, a global data tracker that combines the CDC, Johns Hopkins, WHO and the IMF world data to create a daily update of cases and deaths.
Since the U.S. media focuses on new cases, which are riddled with all kinds of misleading inconsistencies, including repeat testing (multiple testing per person), new cases also do not indicate level of sickness, only a positive result, and new cases are most likely from a PCR swab known to be 40-50% inaccurate depending on adjusted cycle thresholds which can produce false positives.

In each case, if you compare the most recent number to where we were at its peak in each respective State you will find science paints are far clearer picture of the pandemic and its real impact in the US at the present time.
And finally the big picture on how many deaths are occurring on average per day across all fifty States as of August 2nd, 2021.
