COVID numbers skitter around as vaccinations rise to 69.3% of eligible

Betsy Price Headlines, Health

 

 

Delaware’s average of new positive cases dropped to 20.6%, a full 10 percentage points down from last week, as the number of vaccinated people creeped closer to President Biden’s goal of 70% of those eligible for shots.

The Delaware Division of Public Health also said Friday that 13 deaths were reported last week, 11 of them from a review of vital statistic records. So far, 1,693 Delawareans have died from the virus.

In its weekly summary of case information, the state said 109,636 cases of COVID-19 have been diagnosed among Delaware residents and the seven-day average of tests that were positive rose slightly to 1.1%. There were 23 people hospitalized because of the virus, down four from last week, with six in critical condition.

Vaccinations

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data shows 69.3% of Delawareans have received at least one dose of the vaccine. It still leaves thousands to make Biden’s Fourth of July goal.

As of Friday morning, 990,742  doses of vaccine had been administered in Delaware. Among Delawareans 12+, 501,422 have received at least one dose and 432,948 Delawareans are fully vaccinated.
