A list of places in the US where the next outbreaks of coronavirus could happen paints a grim picture for our area.
The list, published in the New York Times on Tuesday, showed Elkhart as having the tenth highest average daily growth rate of new COVID-19 cases, with a number that doubles every 12.6 days.
The Michigan City-LaPorte area has the 8th highest daily growth rate of deaths, with a 6% daily growth rate. Muncie scored even higher with a daily growth rate of deaths at 7%.
The Times used a database of reports from state and local health agencies and hospitals from the past two weeks to compile their data.
