WVBi COVID-19 Update for October 16, 2020

State health officials reported a huge batch of new cases yesterday with 2,030 added to the tally.  That brings new cases to their highest point since back in April. While the surge in cases hasn’t been accompanied by a similar surge in deaths, state health officials remain concerned about the strain on the healthcare system.  The surge seems to be happening downstate and in the U-P, effectively bookending our part of the state.  There’s a map from Bridge Michigan in todays script that shows the details.

 

Yesterday’s report brings the total cases since the start to 141,091 with 27,908 of those active.  There were 32 new deaths bring the total there to 6,973.  Average for new cases is now at 1,293. For deaths the number is 18.  Safe start numbers for the state are 4.1% for the positive test rate—which continues to blip up—and 99.9 new cases per million, which is a blip up from yesterday after about a week of going down—but those safe start numbers are several days behind.  Current data is as of the 12th.

 

In our region there were 32 new cases and no new deaths. Six new cases in Charlevoix.  Total active cases in the region is 377.  Average for new cases is 15 and the average for deaths is 0.  Safe start numbers for our zone continue to look good with a 2.2 percent positive test rate—with less than 3% as the target—and new cases at 35.9 per million.  That’s above the target and in the B zone on the state’s low then A to E scale. No change in the data from our health center. 197 tests run with 187 back negative.  Six positive tests none of which are active on the island.

 

Full county-by-county data for our region are in today’s script online along with state, regional, U-P and Safe Start Zone totals, plus rolling averages and active case estimates.
