With Covid cases low, small increases appear to be large. Here’s actual data.
Covid Cases Still Low in MA
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health released its Covid Dashboard on 4-15-22 (which looks back 2 weeks) showing in MA: under 2500 new Covid cases (in last day), under 350 patients currently hospitalized with Covid, and under 40 patients currently in ICU units, with under 10 new deaths reported. 7 day average of percent positivity is 3.89%. Average age of death was 78. Gardner Magazine is committed to not overstate the risk of Covid and still urges proactive measures such as vaccines, boosters, and quick treatment for those afflicted.
