WVBI COVID-19 Update for December 28, 2021

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.

 

The Health Center is reporting three new tests since Christmas Eve.  All of them are back negative. No new tests. No tests pending.  Another two cases that were on the tally have now peeled off bringing the total active case count to 15—that’s cases 30 days old or less.

 

Data from the state released yesterday covered five days and showed a downtick in new cases and a big downtick in new deaths—but the numbers probably do not yet fully reflect the impact of the arrival of the Omicron variant. Nevertheless, the new data push the seven-day running averages to 6,663 for new cases and 95 for deaths. In our region there were 298 new cases over the five day period and five deaths. 17 of the new cases were in Charlevoix along with two of the deaths. Emmet, Grand Traverse and Kalkaska each had one death.

 

Hospitalization rates continue to run high, but the rates are on a downward trend overall and for COVID-19—at least state-wide. ICU COVID-19 occupancy is down to about 28% from a high of 33%. For regular beds, the rate is about 17% down from 22%.
