[COVID19]WVBI COVID-19 Update for January 4, 2022

Although the WVBI on-air Community Calendar report is on vacation until January 10, we are providing occasional updates including for the state’s COVID-19 data releases.

More good news at the Health Center.  Another seven tests run (one already in 2022) and all back negative.

 

Data from the state released yesterday afternoon covered five days and showed a jump in new cases and in new deaths. The new data push the seven-day running averages to 12,442 for new cases (up by 4,040) and to 91 for deaths (up by four) (including reclassifications). In our region there were 496 new cases over the five-day period and four deaths. 59 of the new cases were in Charlevoix (that’s 12 a day) as was one of the deaths. The other deaths were in Grand Traverse with one death each.

 

Hospitalization rates continue to run high with 80.5% of regular beds occupied state-wide and 80.6% of ICU beds filled—those rates both down a bit, but higher than the 75% said to be typical. COVID-19 occupancy numbers moved up 1.7 points for all beds to 19%, but down for ICU des to 26.4% from 28.2%.

A note about a correction.  The original version of our prior report included and relied on data averaged over five days when, in fact, the report covered two days.  Those errors have been corrected.
