The first artifact shows a graph of how much COVID has spread through Worcester through the number of cases the hospital records. The number of cases are gradually increasing, especially the number of active positive patients, without any set in stone symptoms for this. These are mainly affecting the elder generation along with those who have severe health conditions. There is no way to approach this, especially since there are no cures as of now. People could be tested positive and would not have shown any symptoms which makes this extremely difficult to track. A lot of rules and regulations have been put in place to prevent the spread of COVID however from March to May the number of total deaths has gradually increased to about 190-200 deaths that are just in Worcester. Although from what I see everyday people are wearing masks, using hand sanitizer, and keeping a 6 ft distance between themselves and others. If society continues to follow this path the number might gradually decrease.
