New COVID-19 cases have been gradually dropping in the U.S. But what about here in Pennsylvania?
Last week, for the first time since early July, we saw 5 consecutive days where our 7 day average went down.
But Monday and Tuesday’s case reports brought that average back up.
Despite the blips we’re seeing health experts say there’s growing optimism that unless something unforeseen happens like a new variant resistant to vaccines. This should be the last major wave.
“I think by Thanksgiving you’ll have seen this move it’s way through the country. The virus isn’t going away but prevalence levels will decline to a level that feels more manageable.”
On a national scale the current model suggests national numbers would drop from the current 114 thousand per day to about 20 thousand by the end of November.
In the state that’s about 800 cases per day.
