The CDC has changed some of the way that deaths are counted which in the USA has lowered the daily average from about 4000/day to closer to 3000/day. These numbers are still political and still really can’t be trusted even with a new administration. It’s too soon for the vaccine to be having any effect. New variants are potentially more deadly, faster spreading, and possibly vaccine immune.
