4/17 Update on Secaucus' Coronavirus Statistics

By Staff Writer, Posted 04-17-2020
While federal and state level statistics do indicate that the number of new COVID-19 cases are slowing down, that is unfortunately not the case yet in Secaucus. As seen in the graph below, the slope of the curve is still pretty much at the same upward angle. (Click on any of the data points in the graph to see specific details.) Hence, Secaucus has yet to experience the "curve flattening" that has been reported with larger statistical data sets.

Although the increase of new cases hasn't slowed down locally yet, there is good news. The number of Coronavirus related deaths seem to be already plateauing with no reports of additional fatalities in the last four days. And even before then, the cases of reported deaths have been steadily low, especially when compared to other parts of the country. So although Secaucus has been heavily impacted by this pandemic like the rest of the world, at least it looks like most local patients will be able to make a full recovery.

Despite that positive note, though, it was just announced that Secaucus schools will continue to remain closed until May 15. So while we may be beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, it is still very obvious that life won't return to normal any time soon for many Secaucus residents.
