Charleston Area COVID-19 Cases ‘Headed in the Right Direction’ MUSC Says
The Medical University of South Carolina pinpointed the peak of COVID-19 cases in the Charleston area to July 5, according to new data released from its COVID-19 Epidemiology Project. Their data suggests that as of Aug. 5, the total number of newly-diagnosed cases in the Tri-County area was 223, nearly half of its July 5 peak of 418.
“We should feel good about this, that it’s coming down in the Charleston area,” project leader Dr. Michael Sweat said. “It’s clearly a testament to the fact that people are wearing masks and separating, etc.”
But Sweat’s team still rates the Charleston area’s COVID-19 infection rate as being in the red on a red-yellow-green scale as of Monday.
