NC COVID numbers 5-4-2020

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 

  • 2,604 new tests
  • 184 new cases
  • 23 more hospitalizations
  • 8 more deaths

Still weekend numbers, so I don’t think much can be seen in this. Hospitalizations are running right between 450 and 550 for the last two weeks or so. If there is any pattern to all of this I’m not seeing it.

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 

  • 4,360 new tests
  • 155 new cases
  • 27 fewer hospitalizations
  • 2 more deaths

A big drop in hospitalizations over the last two days, and only two deaths today. I wouldn’t read too much into that as the weekend numbers are usually lower.

NC COVID numbers 5-2-2020

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 

  • 5,643 new tests
  • 586 new cases
  • 45 fewer hospitalizations
  • 21 more deaths

The number of daily deaths remains high. We’re also not seeing fewer cases as a percentage of tests returned.

NC COVID numbers 5-1-2020

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 

  • 5,796 new tests
  • 414 new cases
  • 1 more hospitalizations
  • 21 more deaths

The daily death rate has remained relatively high. We’ve lost about 130 people in the last week alone out of a total of 399 dead. That’s about a third of the total dead in the last seven days. This does not look like a “flattened curve.” We remain able to handle the total number of patients in the hospital, but this doesn’t look like the problem winding down.

NC COVID numbers 4-30-2020

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 

  • 9,596 new tests
  • 561 new cases
  • 5 fewer hospitalizations
  • 24 more deaths

This repeated large number of deaths over the last two weeks seems to indicate that we’re hitting our “surge.” Of course we’ll not be able to tell for sure until it’s over. It certainly could get worse. We have to hope that it will get better. Like I’ve said before, we aren’t seeing a very high peak, so it is difficult to tell what is “peaking” and what is “statistical noise.”

NC COVID numbers 4-29-2020

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 

  • 5,688 new tests
  • 380 new cases
  • 88 more hospitalizations
  • 12 more deaths

A big jump in hospitalizations, but more of the same everywhere else. Even with more than 5,000 tests completed today we only have 380 new cases. That’s good news. Whether or not that balances out the 88 more people in the hospital, I have no idea.

NC COVID numbers 4-28-2020

Our daily numbers show the following changes from yesterday 

  • 2,832 new tests
  • 426 new cases
  • 10 fewer hospitalizations
  • 36 more deaths

A very bad night. Our previous worst number of deaths in one day was 34 a week ago on the 21st.

NC COVID numbers 4-27-2020

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 

  • 2,026 new tests
  • 312 new cases
  • 22 more hospitalizations
  • 7 more deaths

I’m still not seeing any obvious trends. I’m also not seeing a big increase in testing. One would think that we should be seeing more tests run, but so far that’s not been the case.

NC COVID numbers 4-26-2020

Our daily numbers show the following changes from yesterday TWO DAYS AGO

  • 7,310 new tests
  • 778 new cases
  • 26 fewer hospitalizations
  • 30 more deaths

I didn’t run the numbers yesterday, so this update represents two days, yesterday and today.
