NC cases rise, but some trends make health officials hopeful :: WRAL.com

Why New York? The states up the Interstate 95 corridor detected omicron earlier than North Carolina did – about 10 days earlier, so how they’re trending sheds light on what might take place here. The early reports show cases are leveling off. “We are seeing that upward trend in North Carolina,” said Dr. Susan Kansagra, the NCDHHS Senior Deputy Director for the Division of Public Health. “In other places in the U.S. – for example New York City – we are starting to see that they might be tapering off as far as the number of cases or at least plateauing.” “We think we are heading there but we are still far behind,” Kansagra said. “But that at least gives hope for where we might be in a few weeks.”

Currently, North Carolina case numbers are rising. The average number of new cases added each day has increased by 749 percent in the past month. The omicron variant is spreading wildly among the North Carolina population, with an average of more than 26,000 cases being reported each day. A Boston wastewater analysis – which has been a leading indicator in the past for case trends – shows the amount of virus detected has plunged by 40 percent since peaking on the first of the year. In Raleigh, after a sharp increase over the holidays, the latest wastewater data shows the Triangle, too, is seeing the amount of virus detected trending downward.

To think of it another way: That’s like the whole city of Clayton testing positive in a single day. As public health officials are grappling with how to combat the latest variant of the virus, they’re looking to how it’s trending in other locations.
