ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) - St. Louis County Executive Sam Page said he believes the number of COVID-19 cases in St. Louis County is at or near a plateau.
Page made the comments hours after Dr. Alex Garza with the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force expressed the same sentiment.
Over the past 24 hours, St. Louis County reported 2 deaths, the county's largest one day jump. Although Page attributes that to how the reporting process works, he says he believes the peak or plateau in case numbers is near.
Garza made a similar statement about the St. Louis area at the task force's daily press conference earlier in the day, saying new hospitalizations for COVID-19 are near a peak.
