If there was any doubt about the toll this coronavirus pandemic has had on overall public health, new CDC data makes it clear. U.S. life expectancy dropped by 1.5 years in 2020, driven by the deadly virus. That’s the biggest drop since World War II.

Officials announce 655 new, positive cases and 5 new deaths. Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 899,464 cases in the state and 26,562 confirmed and probable deaths.
