(WXYZ) — A website that tracks COVID-19 trends says Michigan is one of two states that are on track to contain COVID-19.
Covid Act Now describes itself as a multidisciplinary team of technologists, epidemiologists, health experts, and public policy leaders working to provide disease intelligence and data analysis on COVID in the U.S.
On Tuesday, Covid Act Now tweeted that cases are steadily decreasing in Michigan. It also said the state's COVID preparedness meets or exceeds international standards across key metrics.

New York is the other state on track to contain the virus, according to Covid Act Now.
According to data from Covid Act Now, Michigan's infection rate, positive test rate and ICU headroom used are low. Michigan also has enough tracing to help contain COVID.
On average, the site says each Michigander with COVID is infecting 0.85 other people. Because each person is infecting less than one other person, the total number of current cases in Michigan is shrinking.
