There are over 15,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in North Carolina. According to data from NCDHHS, trends and metrics remain stable.
Last week, we talked to NC DHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen about North Carolina entering Phase 1. If you missed that conversation, you can listen to that here. She mentioned the ‘3 W’s’ – wear a mask, wash your hands, and wait 6 feet apart. With the following of those 3 tasks, Dr. Cohen & Gov. Cooper think North Carolina can come out on the bright side of all of this. While the numbers are forever changing, according to recent data an estimate of 9,115 people in North Carolina have recovered from COVID-19, which is slightly over 60% of the total people who have tested positive for the virus.
NC DHHS officials are estimating it takes an average of 14 days to recover, and up to 28 days for those who are hospitalized. With all of the negative news surrounding COVID-19, we thought we’d share some facts, that can double as a bright side! Click here for more data.
