January 12 COVID-19 Test Results; Record 7-Day Deaths

Summary:
Note: It is possible the 7-day average cases is nearing a peak. I'm looking forward to not posting this data in a few months. The US is now averaging close to 2 million tests per day. Based on the experience of other countries, for adequate test-and-trace (and isolation) to reduce infections, the percent positive needs to be under 5% (probably close to 1%), so the US has far too many daily cases - and percent positive - to do effective test-and-trace.There were 1,871,244 test results reported over the last 24 hours.There were 213,885 positive tests.Almost 35,000 US deaths have been reported so far in January.
