According to data, the Ingham County Health Office Has seen a decrease in testing from Sept. 18th to this week.

According to WILX, Ingham County Health Officer, Linda Vail, says that a lack of test leaves her concerned, especially with Michigan State University Students back in school. She said she believes students should get tested as often as they can.

“This kind of surge in cases and get them back under control given an incubation period that can be as long as 14 days. Given the fact that there is an “are” factor and “are not” factor that says for every case probably another 3 or 4 are going to get infected. What that tells me is that the drop in cases after that many just doesn’t - it just is not adding up right so.. the data kind of leads me to believe to suspect that - that’s what is going on,” said Vail.

As of right now, the Ingham Country Health Department is monitoring 227 cases in the county, which does include MSU-related cases.
The health department will have another update next Thursday.
