Colorado Gov. Jared Polis provides COVID-19 update
KETO 93.9 FM Live የቀጥታ ስርጭት
I know that there have been concerns about whether we are moving too quickly. I want to show you two charts that have been guiding my decisions.
1️⃣Case Growth Rate: This shows how quickly the rate of cases is going up. As you can see — the rate of new cases has been under 10% and has stayed under 10% for the past month. This is as a result of the actions that you have taken in Colorado to stop the spread of the virus. Recently it’s been around 5%. That shows a leveling off of new cases.
2️⃣Hospitalization Growth Rate: The growth of hospitalizations has been declining for a number of weeks and we have fewer hospitalizations now than we did a week ago and two weeks ago.
Given that new cases and hospitalizations are leveling off, given our modeling, and given where we are in terms of acquiring PPE, building hospital capacity, and recruiting staff, we feel comfortable that the state can handle the caseload, and we can begin taking these baby steps to establish a way of life that is safer and allows more Coloradans to earn a living.
