COVID-19 Numbers

Here’s what I have for today:

  • Methuen, MA
    • Total Cases: 983 (up 2 from yesterday)
    • Deaths: 57
    • Death Rate: 5.80%
  • Massachusetts
    • Total Cases: 106,422 (up 271 from yesterday)
    • Deaths: 7,770
    • Death Rate: 7.30%
  • United States
    • Total Cases: 2,177,842 (up 24,639 from yesterday)
    • Deaths: 118175
    • Death Rate: 5.43%

The numbers for the city of Methuen and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are definitely trending down, though not nearly fast enough for this red head.

The United States of American, however, is trending up with a bullet. There has been no consistent dropping of daily infections at all. If anything, it’s been creeping up over the last couple of weeks. Looks like the Cheeto-in-Chief’s plan to close our eyes and pretend there’s nothing happening is working like gangbusters.

Massachusetts is still the fifth most infected state in the country, though Texas and Florida are quickly catching up. California thought they were improving, but if you look at the graphs of the infection rates they haven’t slowed down at all. Hooray for haircuts and bar hopping.

In the immortal words of Lt Frank Drebin… Nothing to see here. Please disburse. Nothing to see here.
