Busiest US Airports During COVID

Anyone have updated stats on the busiest US airports by passengers? I suspect DFW and DEN are probably numbers 1 and 2 but I would love to see the numbers.

Most Connected Domestic Hub: DEN, ATL, DFW, ORD?

I have seen DEN add a number of domestic destinations, partially driven by EAS grants.

Is DEN the most connect domestic (non international) hub now? I think they are definitely over 200 distinct destinations when running at normal capacity. . .
