For the statistically inclined, the rolling 7-day average for today is:
Cases: 64,418, down from 68,507 yesterday, decreasing for the 16th consecutive day (peak: 176,025 on 2023/1/12)
Deaths: 344, down from 355 yesterday, decreasing for the 10th consecutive day (peak: 425 on 2023/1/18)
Going down. Game over.
They need to downgrade it soon before the next wave comes and they aren’t able to!
What a joke!
Good to see the infection numbers significantly decreasing but the deaths are still excruciatingly high. RIP to those deceased and condolences to their families.
