After the news that states like California and New York have begun trending downward in terms of active cases, some more good news came.
Michigan reported a decrease in active cases for the second day in a row as they continue to battle COVID. With currently more than a 1,000 active cases, and over 1,000 people in critical care, this is a good step forward.
This last Wednesday they also discharged more than 700 patients with suspected or confirmed COVID symptoms. Meaning that they’ve now recovered or have been deemed non-infected, which is more good news.
While these are important statistics, it’s still good to remember that this fight is not yet over. Even if some countries are opening things back up and we’re seeing gradual declines throughout the US, there’s more to come. Recently Colorado increased our Shelter in Place for two more weeks in an effort to continue flattening the curve.
We all just have to do our part and hope that we’ve done enough that we bought some time for hospitals and vaccines to begin herd immunity. With news that a vaccine is beginning human trials, hope is definitely on the horizon for the first time in a while.
