Maine’s COVID-19 admissions have dropped to their lowest level in three months.
It is a continuation of a trend that has officials hoping Maine can finally shake loose from the omicron rise that has gripped the state since December.
There are 249 Mainers infected with the virus at hospital admissions across the state as of Wednesday morning, according to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s down from 260 the day before and from the pandemic of 436 set on January 13th.
It is also the lowest since November 14, when 249 Mainers were admitted. Overall, admissions have fallen 43 percent in the past month, state data shows.
The number of Mainers in critical care dropped slightly to 63, while those on fans rose to 29 since Tuesday.
With tens of thousands of backward positive cases To increase Maine’s daily figures, declining hospital admissions, though much higher than those seen last summer, are seen as an indicator that COVID-19 may be loosening its grip on the state.
This is not the only indicator that the virus is spreading. That daily average for positive COVID-19 tests has declined in recent weeks, while wastewater monitoring also suggests that the spread of the virus is declining across the state.
