No COVID-related deaths in Delaware over past week

Posted

DOVER – No COVID-19-related deaths were reported this week, leaving the number of Delawareans who have passed away from complications unchanged at 1,695, Delaware’s Division of Public Health announced Friday.

A total of 109,986 positive cases of COVID-19 among Delaware residents have been reported to DPH since March 11, 2020.

Meanwhile, the seven-day average of new positive cases decreased to 24.1 as of Thursday.

In addition, 31 individuals are currently hospitalized due to COVID-19 in Delaware, the same as last week. Six of those hospitalized are critically ill, up three from last week, DPH reported.

Most statistics related to COVID-19 in Delaware are as of 6 p.m. Thursday.

However, as of Tuesday, the seven-day average for the percentage of total tests that were positive was 1.7%, an increase from 1.2% as of June 29. There is a two-day lag for presenting data related to percent of tests that are positive to account for the time delay between the date of the test and the date that DPH receives the test result.

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 70.6% of Delawareans ages 18 and over have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

As of 12:01 a.m. Friday, 1,024,331 administered doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been reported to the state’s immunization information system, DelVAX. Among Delawareans 12 and over, 512,107 have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 455,096 Delawareans are fully vaccinated.

Delaware’s latest COVID-19 vaccination statistics can be found under the Vaccine Tracker dashboard.

DPH, in partnership with medical staff from the Delaware National Guard, have launched mobile units to offer COVID-19 vaccines in underserved communities. Medically trained DNG staff are offering the Pfizer vaccine (for ages 12 and older) and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine (for persons 18 or older).

These mobile units are scheduled to visit these communities in Kent, Sussex and New Castle counties next week.
