Like many in the medical profession in New Jersey, Dr. Deven Unadkat is concerned about the growing number of positive COVID-19 cases in New Jersey, especially in Hudson County.
Since flattening out over the summer, the number of new positive COVID-19 cases has been steadily climbing. On August 28, Hudson County’s seven-day average was 17. This week, the seven-day average rose to 249.
But Dr. Unadkat, the chair and medical director of the Emergency Medicine at Jersey City Medical Center, also sees a ray of hope.
