August 18 Southeastern Covid-19 Update

This is the most promising update on Covid in months. From where things stood four weeks ago, the recent changes are remarkable. Cases are dropping, or at least stable, in every state in the southeast and the United States overall. Hospitalizations in the region continue to creep up, but since those lag new cases this isn’t a surprise. In two weeks, I hope to see hospitalizations down.

Speaking of hospitalizations, Alabama continues its very strange patterns on new hospitalizations, but with big a drop the last two weeks instead of a surge. Cases are dropping equally as fast/faster, so that’s more good news!

In the charts below note the changes in cases from Florida and Louisiana, plus the charts on new cases and new deaths in the United States overall. If this trend continues, or even if cases have plateaued, we might be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

In other good news, the first three stories posted below provide a promising picture on the current covid situation and optimism for the future.

August 5 Covid-19 Update

Most of the trends from two weeks ago continue, with a couple of notable exceptions. Cases in Florida and Louisiana appear to be leveling off, with some decline over the last week or so in both states. With universities (potentially) opening in the next month, that trend will be tested. If cases continue to level and/or drop, this is tremendous news for this Fall. 
 
Also notable is Alabama’s continued dramatic surge of hospitalizations remains puzzling. As you’ll see in the chart below, hospitalizations are so high that it would mean nearly everyone who tested positive over the last couple of weeks ended up in the hospital. I was skeptical two weeks ago and now I find it almost impossible to believe. Again, I checked the numbers with Alabama’s health department and the totals add up, but I remain convinced that hospitalizations were inaccurately counted for weeks or months and the data is now catching up to reality.
