DOVER — One person has died due to COVID-19, according to data reported by the Delaware Division of Public Health.
That brings the state’s total number of COVID-related deaths to 1,683.
There were 22 new cases reported by DPH, bringing the total number of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 to 109,548.

Delawareans age 65 and older continue to be the most highly vaccinated age group. About 32% of all people vaccinated fall into that age group.
With the vaccine approved for Delawareans age 12 to 17, nearly 25,000 within that age range have received at least one dose.
A total of 980,040 doses have been administered, an increase of 311 from the previous day’s DPH report.
Data shows a drop in the number of people who received the vaccine on Saturday compared to last weekend. One hundred and ninety five people were fully vaccinated on Saturday and 116 were partially vaccinated. Last weekend 2,371 were fully vaccinated and 790 were partially vaccinated.
Of those fully vaccinated, DPH’s website states there have been 383 breakthrough infections of COVID-19, meaning infection rates for a vaccinated person are less than one-tenth of 1%.
