Framingham’s rate of known new Covid-19 infections continue to drop as vaccinations rise, according to data released today by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. An estimated 58.8% of city residents have received at least one vaccine dose, up from 54% a week ago; and 37.6% are fully vaccinated, up from 33.6%.
The city had an average of 15.1 daily new Covid cases per 100,000 people over the last 14 days, lowest since October. And, test positivity dropped to 2.09% – lowest since August.
The overall number of cases in the latest two-week period dropped 27.3% compared with last week’s report, while the number of tests administered only declined 9.5%.
The city remains in the Baker administration’s yellow zone. According to my unofficial calculations, the city would also now be classified as “substantial transmission” (orange) under CDC guidelines, down from high transmission (red).
