Tomorrow we will pass 1.3M total cases.
The Health Agency reports close to 7,500 new cases (with 4 laboratories not submitting reports) for June 8, 2021. The positivity rate is still a high 12.8% in spite of the close to 52,000 tests done. To bring down the positivity rate, more testing should be done. Approximately 100,000 tests a day will help bring the national positivity rate to less than 10%.
