New data from around Missouri shows COVID-19 numbers are dropping.
“Cases are declining, the spread is slowing and we’re heading in the right direction.”
Governor Mike Parson says as of Wednesday, there were 14-hundred people in the hospital with COVID-19, and that’s down from around 28-hundred in November.
“Currently at 7.6%, Missouri’s positivity rate is under 10-percent for the first time since October. That’s a good sign for Missouri.”
Parson says just before the holidays the positivity rate was at 24.7 percent.
Missouri’s seven-day average case rate is at its lowest since last summer.
Local cases remain unknown at this time, as it’s been several weeks since Miller county has updated their daily numbers and more than 1 month since Camden County updated their numbers.
Morgan and Benton counties are currently showing very low numbers of active cases at this time.
