See recent piece with data gathered from Covidtracking.com. Note orange vs blue lines.
If certain conspiracies are to believed then the early reports are padded. Now people want to stop testing or reporting at all. What's to be believed?

Edit- it could also be that early cases were more concentrated in the elderly and immunocompromised which makes sense. We are basically the survivors of that early wave, so our fatality rate will be different.
