Dr. Steve Thode, the retired Director of Real Estate Studies at Lehigh University, has been closely following the Covid-19 crisis and has prepared charts colorized charts showing the daily new Covid-19 cases over the past two weeks, both in the Big Northeast as well as combined Lehigh and Northampton County totals.
As of yesterday, the average number of new Covid-19 cases has dropped from 238 to 188. Unfortunately, the magic number to go from red to yellow is 58. We're nowhere close.
Unfortunately, Northampton County continues to dominate the the total number of cases in the 10-County Region (27.4% over the past 14 days). This is because it has 13 nursing and personal care homes.
