Iowa health officials say a new data point seems to indicate the effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 may be working.

Department of Public Health director Sarah Reisetter says they’re also tracking another number — about when patients begin to show symptoms.

OC……appears to be flattening.” :16

Governor Reynolds says that data showing when Iowans who’ve gotten a positive COVID-19 test first began showing symptoms of the virus will be released to the public next week.

She also reported the latest new case numbers:

OC………..506 recovered. :26

That’s a recovery rate of 36 per cent.
