Tonight’s Covid By The Numbers update:
As of 7 p.m., the John Hopkins website reports 364,723 cases in the U.S. That is an increase of 29,199, up from yesterday’s increase of 26,991.
The daily rate of increase was 8.7%, a definite downtick from yesterday’s 12.7%.
The day over day change was 8.2%.
The five-day running average of new cases is 29,841.
The morbidity rate of Covid-19 in the U.S. ticked up again and has now reached 3.0%.
To put these in perspective:Odds of contracting Covid-19: 1 in 893.Odds if infected of recovery: 1 in 19Odds if infected of fatality: 1 in 34
We had another increase in the number of recovered cases. It now stands at 19,346, an 18.9% increase from yesterday. Another sign of a change in the progression of this disease is when we see more cases recovered than newly reported as infected. (For example, cases recovered / new cases = 2080/29199 = .07) . We want a number above 1.0 here.
As always, be safe, be smart, and most of all, be kind to yourself and others.
