Covid-19 update: 20 infected residents

by beth on April 14, 2020

The Town updated the number of infected residents this afternoon. A total of 20 Southborough residents have been confirmed. 8 are in isolation, with 12 having already been cleared.

Below are the latest stats from the Town website:

April 14th data on Covid-19 in Southborough

Updated (4/16/20 11:39 am): As of this time, the Town is still showing the same stats as above. Meanwhile on April 15th, Mass DPH posted a list of infected patients by town. It indicated there were 21 infected Southborough residents as of yesterday afternoon. I checked with the Town Administrator about the discrepancy. He said they determined that the state included someone who has been residing in an out-of-town assisted living facility for a number of years.

it would be interesting to know what these numbers would have translated to today had we not closed schools and begun social distancing.
I’m sure there is a statistical model out there somewhere, I’ll add to the thread if I find one.

I agree. It certainly seems that we slowed the curve, but I don’t have data to compare.

A couple of months ago it was predicted that if no precautions were taken, populations could expected an 80% infection rate.

Surely we’re well below that level.

There’s certain kids in and around the Southwood Dr./Parkville Rd neighborhoods that are still riding around in the same cars. there’s one down the street with a New York plate that showed up last week at a house and the two girls have been riding around all the time. Can you imagine that? With New York plates? This is unsafe behavior.

Have you happened to observe cats and dogs sleeping with one another?
