The number of daily COVID deaths in the U.S. has gone from an average of more than 3,000 in January to about 360 as of Sunday.

The number of deaths has gone down as vaccination rates increase.

Still, there are some who won't take the vaccine, no matter what science and the statistics say.

The battle against COVID-19 in the U.S. reached another grim milestone on Tuesday, as the death toll surpassed the 600,000 mark. This comes as the country pushes to have 70-percent of adults in the U.S. get at least one vaccination by the Fourth of July.

COVID deaths in the U.S. have slowed in recent months as more people get vaccinated, particularly the country's elderly and others who are at high risk of dying from the virus due to medical conditions.

According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 76-percent of Americans 65 and older are now fully vaccinated. (CNBC)
