The CDC says that while the infection rate of people who contract the bacteria from eating pork or from contact with someone with it is lower than previously thought, that is not necessarily because they are more aware of the infection.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that in the first four weeks after the coronavirus was reported, the national coronaviruses death rate fell from 16.5 percent to 12.8 percent, the decrease being attributed to the vaccine being given to people who had not yet had the vaccine and the decline in new cases reported by the states.
In the same period, the nationwide number of reported cases increased by about 30 percent.
The CDC says, however, that while some infections are more likely to be transmitted through food, others are transmitted through contact with others.
The agency said the number of confirmed cases from the outbreak was 3,079, and there were 2,746 deaths.
The number of people confirmed with the coronovirus has been reported at 5,937.
