I can confirm now that new Stops have been added in my county. I haven't seen any new ones in my city, but the Ingress player who placed most of the stops around my area has informed the local community that his submissions for portals (from 2 years ago) have started to be accepted/declined.
As for Gyms, I think an overall rate of 12-15% increase has happened in my city. Many stops in my area have been transformed into Gyms. In the cemetary area for example, we used to have 4 Gyms. Now we have 9. These 5 new Gyms were PokeStops before.
