COVID Cases Down as Apex Increases - Some good news across the board

COVID Cases Down as Apex Increases – Some good news across the board

COVID has certainly dwindled in news over the last day, however the US is officially inside the apex tornado. As we record higher and higher cases, the US records lower traffic today, oddly enough.

Earlier today COVID-19 deaths passed 14,000 in the US. Despite those numbers this was followed by the revelation that overall cases in the US actually dropped and recovery was up.

Deaths due to COVID complications will not reach an all time peak until around Sunday according to the most recent metrics. Going along with that Metric, it is important to note that not all states have seen their apex hit as of yet. 

States like Montana, New Jersey and Texas (to name a few) probably will not see their apex until some time later in the month.

Nonetheless, this has not stopped officials and leaders from sharing more optimistic news about the spread of COVID. Previously insisting that we could be seeing COVID complicated deaths range from 80,000 to 120,000. That number has since dropped down to 60,000 which is a sizable improvement overall. 

Trials, vaccines and antibodies are increasing the fight

Similarly, Dr. Anthony Fauci the leader of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that projections are improving. We could be seeing a return to relative normalcy sometime around late August. Meaning we’re on track to see some re-openings sometime in mid to late summer.

All things considered, things are going better than they were before. Cities like New York and Seattle are reporting stronger leveling off for cases, and recoveries are up across the board. Recently we received news of vaccines receiving the second wave of trials, and patient blood is being donated to study antibodies.

Certainly good news all around! Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments and follow us on social media to stay up to date with anything COVID related.
