WVBI COVID-19 Update for April 26, 2021

 

First, some news…

 

Once again we have good news on the COVID-19 front.  The numbers from Friday and Saturday continue to show that the current surge seems to be past its peak. There were an average 4,865 new cases for each day and 30 new deaths a day along with 91 reclassified deaths from prior dates. That brings the seven-day running average for new cases is down to 4,859—below the lowest it has been since the first days of April.  In our region, there were an average of 55 new cases a day and one death over both days. There were a net of nine new cases in Charlevoix. The death was in Kalkaska.

 

Safe start dashboard has new case count headed down across the board–state-wide, in our zone and in Charlevoix County. Positive test rate is 14.6% state-wide, 14.6% in our zone and 12.5% in the county—those numbers all down.

 

Hospital utilization data remains high and steady in the last report after some modest declines in COVID-19 utilization.  Overall occupancy for regular beds statewide is 80.1% and 80.9% for I-C-U beds. 18.8% of regular beds have COVID-19 patients in them.  For I-C-U beds, the rate is 27%. Numbers are steady locally with one patient at Munson in Charlevoix and 17 at McLaren in Petoskey.

 

At the health Center, no new tests.  No tests pending. Last positive tests were on the 7th.  There have been three positive tests since the current island cases began. Positive rate is 9.1%.

 

Complete data for our region plus summaries for the state, the T-C safe start zone and the U-P are in today’s script online.
