Our daily numbers show the following changes from yesterday 

  • 8,811 new tests
  • 691 new cases
  • 14 fewer hospitalizations
  • 18 more deaths

I got behind a couple of days ago, so this is the first post that’s on time in three days. Over the last three days we’ve lost 65 people. This is starting to look like a sort of baseline 120-130 people per week dying of COVID19.

Our daily numbers show the following changes from yesterday 

  • 8,213 new tests
  • 470 new cases
  • 46 more hospitalizations
  • 20 more deaths

I hate the phrase “the new normal,” but I’m starting to think that losing about 120-130 people a week statewide might be “the new normal” until we’ve all caught the disease and are immune.

  • 301 new cases
  • 11 more hospitalizations
  • 27 more deaths

Death numbers are up again. We had two days of only 3 deaths, now 27. I’m starting to wonder if they don’t get reports over the weekend.

This is two days in a row with only three deaths. This seems like good news to me. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.

Our daily numbers show the following changes from yesterday 

  • 5,773 new tests
  • 404 new cases
  • 71 fewer hospitalizations
  • 3 more deaths

Very few deaths overnight. That’s good news, as well as the big drop in hospitalizations. We will have to wait and see if this continues.

Link to NC COVID-19 Dashboard – https://www.ncdhhs.gov/divisions/public-health/covid19/covid-19-nc-case-count

Our daily numbers show the following changes from yesterday 

  • 6,846 new tests
  • 639 new cases
  • 9 more hospitalizations
  • 30 more deaths

I’m sure that the news reports are all “as we pass a grim milestone” since we’ve gone over 500 deaths here in NC. 30 deaths overnight is a pretty big number. We’ve seen more than 1/4 of all deaths occurring in the last 7 days. It’s still not a pretty sight out there.

Our daily numbers show the following changes from yesterday 

  • 12,682 new tests
  • 502 new cases
  • 18 fewer hospitalizations
  • 25 more deaths

Today set a new record for one day test results. The previous high was just short of 10,000. What’s interesting is that even though we’re still only giving tests to people who are sick enough to warrant them, tests have only come back positive 7.76% of the time.
