In today’s stories, analyzed with automated business analysis, we are reporting more findings based upon data shared by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU).
Here’s what we found about yesterday:
A trend started on April 9th, where the number of confirmed cases has continued to increase in Massachusetts. Yesterday, the increase was 15% higher than expected.
Four counties in Massachusetts are contributing to this increase, including Middlesex, Plymouth, Suffolk and Norfolk counties. The biggest contributing county looks like Middlesex, who is contributing by 38% to this trend.
Also, seeing an increase in the number of confirmed cases in Russia who saw a day-over-day increase of 31%.
New Cases Are Declining Too
Great news for the United States. We are seeing the number of confirmed cases start to flatten. This new downward trend is 3% lower than previous.
Several states are contributing to this decline, including New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Georgia.
Michigan is starting to see a decrease in the number of confirmed cases. The state decreased 40% when compared to the previous day.
In Michigan, the decrease is being led mainly by Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, and Genesee counties. The new shelter-in-place order may be having a positive effect.
More good news from Europe too. Germany recorded reduced cases for a month. The country saw a day-over-day decrease of 17%.
