FAIRFIELD — Solano County on Wednesday experienced another decline in the daily increases of Covid-19 cases.
The Public Health Division reported 177 new cases, down from the four-day average of 288 cases experienced from Saturday through Tuesday.
The total number of cases is 25,983.
“I’m cautiously optimistic we are post-peak,” Dr. Bela Matyas, the county public health officer, said in a phone interview, “which would allow us to come off the health order.”
That, he said, would mean opening more businesses and allowing more schools to reopen.
But Matyas said there have been glitches in the numbers reporting, so he still wants to wait to make sure it is a trend.
Another good sign for the county was the step up in the intensive care unit capacity, which was reported at 28%. It was 24% Tuesday.
The seven-day positivity testing rate, however, inched up from 21.3% to 21.7%.
The county also reported its 107th deaths that’s attributed at least in part to Covid-19, and hospitalizations increased by one to 156, the county reported.
