Good news!

Hopefully we start to see a drop going into the Summer.


Pandemic-hit Italy cheered Saturday after seeing its number of intensive care cases for the coronavirus that stretched its healthcare system to breaking point drop for the first time.

Even some of the most cautious health officials seized on the figures as evidence that the tide might be turning in the deadliest disaster the country has faced since World War II.

Civil protection service chief Angelo Borrelli called the drop from 4,068 on Friday to 3,994 on Saturday a big moment in Italy's battle against COVID-19.

"This is a very important data point because the figure is decreasing for the first time," Borrelli told reporters.

"It is important because it allows our hospitals to breathe."

Hopefully it's not just a blip and we have a treatment or a vaccine before it picks back up in the Winter.

Sadly, some of our hot spots haven't reached their peaks yet. If New York and New Jersey aren't seeing a big downward trend in June/July, something will not be adding up.

If you look at the numbers, New York and New Jersey have the bulk of the cases.

309,728 cases in America
147,828 in New York and New Jersey

8,441 total deaths
4,411 in New York and New Jersey

Hopefully we will see a downturn.

Wow, is Italy running out of people over eighty already? So much for being a model for the blue zone.
