It is great to read Mayor Fuller’s COVID-19 update today where she reports “the number of new cases reported in Newton has been smaller in the last few days.”  I appreciate her consistent reporting of the case count for each day, but it is hard to digest these raw numbers and really see by how much the famous “flattening of the curve” is progressing. 

I compiled the numbers from her updates going back to 23-March (www.newtonma.gov/gov/mayor/newsletters.asp ) and plotted both the cumulative “Cases Testing Positive” and “New Cases” as you can see in these graphs.  I hope others find this as encouraging as I do.
