A review of death records from January and February led to 11 new deaths from Covid-19, the Delaware Division of Public Health reported on Wednesday.
A sizable percentage of new cases have been tied to the University of Delaware. According to the UD dashboard, 500 new cases have been recorded in the past couple of weeks. UD limited gatherings and moved dining halls to takeout only service.
DPH reported that 236,155 total vaccine doses have been administered, up 8,058 from the previous day.
Based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention figures, Delaware is approaching the milestone of having one in four residents getting at least one dose of the vaccine. (See pie chart above).
The state continues to work through the a backlog of residents waiting for a second dose of either Moderna or Pfizer vaccine.
Delaware did receive 8,000 doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The one-dose vaccine could quickly increase the number of immunized Delawareans. However the state is not expected to see another shipment until April.
