Case Update: July 28th, 2020

Some more good news this week.  The United States has unambiguously reached the peak of wave 1b, and daily new confirmed cases are slowly going down.  Daily deaths have risen slightly, trailing the higher new cases by a few weeks, but are still relatively low.

The situation is much the same in California and San Diego, with new daily cases coming down and daily deaths rising slightly.  Active cases are probably starting to go down as well.

Testing continues to rise and it is having some impact on the increasing confirmed numbers.  The higher testing is definitely a positive thing and will help us get a more accurate picture of what’s going on.

Don’t fear, but be smart,
