meanwhile, nationwide hospitalizations nearing record highs of months ago, but while deaths are up-ticking they are still relatively low
In the Bay Area, while all of the indicators are still going up, they are going up at a slower rate than they were two weeks ago, or one week ago. So it's slowing down. For now. I think this is the case in many of the areas that exploded a few weeks ago- so hopefully people are paying attention again to being careful, and this can be contained more quickly and with many fewer deaths than in March/April.
