Delaware saw a small uptick in cases and one new death in the Monday report from the Delaware Division of Public Health.
One new death was reported as of Sunday night.– an individual in their 70s from New Castle County. It increased Delaware’s total number of Covid-related deaths to 1,368.
The other numbers:
- 357 new positive tests, bringing the overall total to 85,090. Cases have been running in the 200 range.
- 20.5 percent of people who tested positive in the seven-day rolling average (up five-tenths of a percent from the previous day) with 4.6 percent of total tests were positive in the seven-day rolling average (down two-tenths of a percent of the previous day). When the percentage of positive tests falls below five percent, the disease’s spread is considered to be under control.
- Current hospitalizations (up seven from the previous day), including 19 individuals in critical condition.
- 30 new hospital admissions (up eight from the previous day).
Even with the decline in infections, the number of Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations remains above summer, the 2020 lows.
