Framingham Covid Rate Down to 3.1 per 100K

Framingham’s rate of known Covid-19 cases per 100,000 population has dropped to 3.1 per day, according to data released today by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. And while that remains the highest rate in Middlesex County, it’s getting close to what the CDC considers low risk of transmission (the city is still in the CDC’s next-lowest rate, moderate risk, on a scale of low, moderate, substantial, and high.)

Framingham’s test positivity dropped below 1% for the first time since such pandemic statistics have been available. The city’s test positivity rate was 0.94% (statewide average was 0.50%). Data is averaged over the most recently available 14 days.

Number of tests administered dropped 7.5% in the last two weeks vs the prior period, while number of cases plummeted 43.9%.

70.5% of the city’s total population has received at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose, an increase of 1 percentage point from the prior week, according to state DPH data. 60.8% of the population is fully vaccinated.
