The long-term strategies to beat coronavirus infections throughout Bucks County have quelled the outbreak to encouraging lows. The progress in putting the pandemic behind us for good was covered by a county press statement in Bucks Local News. 

May ended with a seven-day average of only 23 new cases countywide. That’s an 87 percent drop from April’s statistics. 

The month finished strong: 

  • 16 new cases for May 29 
  • 13 new cases for May 30 
  • 7 new cases for May 31 

The report for the last day of May represented the lowest one-day positive-test rate since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. 

Hospital beds devoted to the treatment of COVID-19 patients are also clearing. A month ago, they numbered almost 100; now, there are 20. 

“Over the last three days, we saw the fewest cases we’ve seen since the month the pandemic started,” said Bucks County Health Department Director Dr. David Damsker. “It’s been a long 16 months, and we’re ready to enjoy the summer without any restrictions. Let’s finish off COVID as much as we can; please get vaccinated, if you haven’t.”
