Acushnet Fire Chief: “4% of Acushnet was found positive for COVID in 1 month. January was brutal.”
“The population of Acushnet is 10,109. This past January 415 residents tested positive for COVID 19. That is 4% of the population, positive, in one month! January was brutal.
Before anyone asks, we don’t know how many were asymptomatic, how many were hospitalized or how many were sick somewhere in between. What we do know is just in the 31 days of this past January 415 of our neighbors got the news we are all trying to avoid, news that upset their lives and worried their families.
To those 415 residents of this town, best wishes from the remaining 9,694 of us who didn’t receive the call.”
