The Positive News About the Continuing Pandemic


Sometimes you have to look for good news about what's going on.

In the midst of all the bad news about the still continuing pandemic, with the Delta variant leading to a rise in cases, and hospitalizations and deaths, there is some good news. The Los Angeles Times pointing out the good news this week about California’s numbers when it comes to COVID.

Vaccinations are increasing steadily, test positivity rates are falling and the number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 has flattened in recent days. This week California’s seven-day positive test rare was down to 4.6 percent compared to 5.8 percent two weeks ago. The number of daily cases statewide of almost 14-thousand was down by 5-percent.

The number of cases is still a lot higher than it was in mid-June when there were 900 new cases on average every day. But California’s COVID numbers are considerably below the numbers in Texas, the second largest state and in Florida and several other states in the South.

Even nationwide there is good news with the number of vaccinations every day showing significant increases.

So while it may feel like it’s always bad news when it comes to the pandemic, there is some good news. And after 18 months of it, it helps looking at the glass half full instead of always looking at it as half empty.
