Covid dashboard: Deaths rise by one as positive cases, hospitalizations decline

Reading Time: 2 minutes

One death was reported in the daily Covid-19 report from the Delaware Division of Public Health.

The individual in his 80s from New Castle County was a resident of a long-term care facility. The death increased Delaware’s total number of COVID-related deaths to 1,367.

The other numbers:
• 197 new positive cases, bringing the overall total to 84,732.
• 20 percent of people who tested positive in the seven-day rolling average (up two-tenths of a percent from the previous day) and 4.8 percent of total tests were positive in the seven-day rolling average (down two-tenths of a percent from the previous day).
• 175 current hospitalizations (down three from the previous day), including 24 individuals in critical condition.
• 22 new hospital admissions (down six from the previous day).
• 687 people who tested negative, bringing the total to 531,605.

• 176,959 total vaccine doses administered (up 7,282 from the previous day).

If the 4.8 percent figure on the percentage of positive cases to total tests stands, it can means the virus is under control based on World Health Organizations standards.

Now being watched are coronavirus cases in Newark as classes resume at the University of Delaware.
