New CDC data shows Missouri had 8.7 daily cases on average per 100,000 people in the last week. The state’s COVID-19 dashboard accounts for 2,843 new confirmed cases in the last seven days.
Missouri has one of the lowest numbers in terms of COVID-19 average daily case rates in the U.S. over the last seven days. Only Hawaii had a lower average daily case rate during that same timeframe. All the data from the U.S. is available the CDC’s COVID-19 page.
Missouri Governor Mike Parson tweeted about it calling it “GREAT NEWS”.
In another tweet he said “the spread is slowing here in Missouri thanks to our citizens continuing to practice preventative measures. This, combined with the vaccine, is how we will win the COVID-19 battle.”
