Default Officials in Washington state, where outbreak started, see hope as cases appear to be

At EvergreenHealth Medical Center, two miles from the shuttered Lifecare nursing home where 35 patient deaths were linked to the virus, officials say their rate of new covid-19 cases has remained steady for two weeks, leveling off at a trickle. On some days, doctors here see just one new case and haven’t seen more than four in a single day since mid-March. Few need admission to the Intensive Care Unit, which is now half full, two weeks after overflow necessitated transfers to nearby hospitals.

Also saw a drop in new cases per day at Florida Health dashboard. There were 506 new cases in Florida on 3/24, and 350 on 3/25. See graph at lower left after clicking link.

My wife went back to work yesterday after her five days off and said the hospital was in the "Green" for the first time in awhile. Meaning they weren't at or over capacity. It was just a couple of weeks ago that they were asking for emergency certification to open up more beds.

I doubt we're out of the woods yet but it would appear that our "stay at home" order is working. I just wish more people would follow it and maybe end this thing a little sooner.

We're about 50 miles from the hospital mentioned in the article.
