WVBI COVID-19 Update for December 30, 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.

Good news at the Health Center.  They are still reporting no new positive tests since the 15th. They’ve recorded eight tests since then, all back negative.  And they are no including test reports from tests run at school in their data. The current active case count is 15—that’s cases 30 days old or less.

 

Data from the state released last Wednesday afternoon covered two days and showed a jump in new cases and in new deaths. The new data push the seven-day running averages to 8,402 for new cases and 87 for deaths (including re-classifications). In our region there were 194 new cases over the five-day period (down from 298 during the prior five-day period) and 12 deaths (up from 5). 18 of the new cases were in Charlevoix. The deaths were in Grand Traverse with seven and Antrim, Benzie, Emmet, Kalkaska and Otsego with one death each.

 

Hospitalization rates continue to run high. COVID-19 occupancy numbers seem to have leveled off after several periods of downward trends.  They remain extremely high.
