New cases of the coronavirus continue to fall in the U.S., as does testing across the country, according to data compiled by Covid Tracking Project, a volunteer project founded by journalists at The Atlantic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention quietly revised its testing guidance earlier this week to say that most people without symptoms who came into contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19 “do not necessarily need a test.” 

Here are some of today’s biggest developments: 

The following data was compiled by Johns Hopkins University:

  • Global cases: More than 23.9 million
  • Global deaths: At least 820,100
  • U.S. cases: More than 5.7 million
  • U.S. deaths: At least 178,500
