Further decrease in COVID-19 cases
By Johannes Becht
COVID-19 cases at Southwestern Oklahoma State University finally seem to feed out. On Tuesday, Feb. 16, the SWOSU administration reported 15 positive cases.
Among them, there are 9 Weatherford students plus 1 Sayre student and 4 employees.
Two weeks ago, 32 people were infected with the coronavirus. One week ago, the number was 24.
This development goes hand in hand with a national and local trend that shows that less and less people are tested positive for COVID. The 7-day-average for active cases in the United States was 85,000 on Feb. 15 - compared with 230,000 a month before. In Oklahoma, the 7-day average was 1,300 on Feb. 15. On Jan. 15, it was 3,900.
