The number of reported coronavirus fatalities in the U.S. on Sunday was 222, the lowest daily death toll in more than a year.

According to the Johns Hopkins University data, this represents the lowest number of deaths since March 23, 2020 when the number was 192.

"Many states either did not report over the weekend or did not have any deaths to report," a Johns Hopkins spokesperson said, according to The Hill. "The California data portal was down yesterday and we are in the process of back-distributing the data," the person noted.

So far 18.8% of the U.S. population has been fully vaccinated against the illness, while 32.4% of the population has received at least one vaccine dose, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
