Across the U.S. — Good News for AZ
Two weeks ago, an alarming acceleration of infections in California, Arizona, Texas and Florida was beginning to develop.
This week, Arizona has turned green on the Johns Hopkins chart of U.S. states, indicating their rate of infection is falling. This is heartening news because it shows that, with concerted public action, we can beat down the virus.
Now all eyes are on Florida, where 15,274 news cases were reported on Saturday, July 11 (source: Florida Dept of Health). As a comparison, the nation of Italy reported 234 new cases on Saturday (source: Bing COVID Tracker).
