    Question to be past the worst of sth

    Hi, I have no idea whether it is an idiom, but looks as idiom, so I post it here: What does "to be past the worst of sth" mean?

    Best,
    Nyggus

    It means that the situation or problem is not resolved, but getting better- klike when a fever has peaked and is coming down, but not completely gone.
