Local 12: Dropping Covid cases across country could signal herd immunity

As the number of COVID-19 cases across the country drops, many are wondering if that means normalcy is returning or if we are seeing enough immunity to stop the spread.

WKRC-TV, Local 12 reported that in all but just five states — Montana, Colorado, Minnesota, Michigan and Pennsylvania — the number of COVID cases are dropping. Those who track these trends said this is a good sign for several reasons, and it may mean we are closer to herd immunity.

Carl Fichtenbaum, MD, of the Division of Infectious Diseases in the UC College of Medicine was one of the sources cited by Local 12 for this story.
