    COVID hospitalizations are probably the best parameter of the current status:

    As the above graph shows, Hospitalizations Nationwide are now at 100,000.

    October 1, they were 30,000.

    They previously have been as high as 60,000, at the end of July, and the end of April.

    Above graph is from Wikipedia Statistics of the COVID-19 Pandemic:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statistics_of_the_COVID-19_pandemic_in_the_United_States#Progression_charts
    if you scroll down two charts to "Current COVID-19-related hospitalizations"


    You can try to find data for your own area, State/County/City if you want to see
    how correlated they are with the National trend.

    Total Hospitalizations should probably be more prominently reported in the News as
    the determiner of the current status, as more tests = more cases.
