Two states at the forefront of the coronavirus outbreak that has infected hundreds of thousands of people across the country are beginning to see infection rates slow as strict social distancing requirements show early results of paying off.
Officials in Washington, the first state to see a confirmed COVID-19 case in the country, and neighboring Oregon say they are cautiously optimistic that the case curves in their states are beginning to bend downward.
The article goes on to state the following:
The number of new cases in both states has dropped for four consecutive days, and the most recent data shows new cases are just a fraction of what they had been at each state’s peak.
“We are cautiously optimistic that what we’re doing is working,” David Bangsberg, founding dean of the Oregon Health and Sciences University-Portland State University School of Public Health, said.
