Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker reported 1,824 new coronavirus cases today, about 12% of the 16,000 tests processed in the state yesterday.
Positive test rates have come in under 20% every day for the last seven days, he said.
Hospitalizations have also been decreasing in the past several days with few spikes. The number of Covid-19 patients in intensive care dropped to 904, he said. However, Baker said that different parts of the state are in various stages of the pandemic.
"For example, Covid hospitalizations and ICU bed days related to Covid have gone down in Western Mass and on the Cape but have remain high in Worcester and on the south coast, and flat in Boston," he said.
While thousands of people are still being hospitalized for Covid-19, Baker said, "the numbers have started to trend in the right direction."
