SMYRNA (July 10, 2020) – The Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) is announcing 121 additional positive cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Delaware, as of 6:00 p.m. Thursday, July 9, 2020. No additional deaths were reported on Thursday. In addition, 58 individuals are currently hospitalized due to COVID-19 in Delaware, 11 of whom are critically ill.

While the total cumulative number of positive cases has increased by 121 between yesterday and today, 111 new positive cases were reported to DPH on July 9. The remaining 10 positive cases are from test results reported on prior days, but processed into the DPH surveillance system on July 9. As a reminder, members of the media and the general public are highly encouraged to use the data on the My Healthy Community dashboard for the most accurate data trends based on the date cases are reported to DPH.

A total of 517 Delawareans have passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Individuals who have died from COVID-19 ranged in age from 21 to 104 years old. Of those who have died, 273 were females and 244 were males. A total of 249 individuals were from New Castle County, 92 were from Kent County, and 176 were from Sussex County.

To protect personal health information, DPH will not confirm specific information about any individual case, even if other persons or entities disclose it independently.

The latest Delaware COVID-19 case statistics* cumulatively since March 11, provided as of 6 p.m., Thursday, July 9, include:

  • 12,652 total positive cases
  • New Castle County cases: 5,688
  • Kent County cases: 1,815
  • Sussex County cases: 5,045
  • Unknown County: 104
  • Females: 6,956; Males: 5,678; Unknown: 18
  • Age range: 0 to 104
  • Currently hospitalized: 58; Critically ill: 11 (This data represents individuals currently hospitalized in a Delaware hospital regardless of residence, and is not cumulative.)
  • Delawareans recovered: 6,949
  • 120,056 negative cases**
    *Data are provisional and subject to change.
    **Data on negative cases are preliminary, based on negative results reported to DPH by state and commercial laboratories performing analysis.

Delaware is considering patients fully recovered seven days after the resolution of their symptoms. Three days after symptoms resolve, patients are no longer required to self-isolate at home; however, they must continue to practice strict social distancing for the remaining four days before returning to their normal daily routine.

Long-term Care Statistics:

Information related to positive cases and deaths among residents at long-term care facilities will be updated weekly each Friday, using information reported as of 6 p.m. Thursday. There have been a total of 1,155 positive COVID-19 cases cumulatively involving long-term care residents, and 333 residents of Delaware long-term care facilities have died from complications related to COVID-19. The total number of deaths among long-care residents has decreased by one since last week as a result of excluding an individual who was determined to be a resident of an independent-living facility, therefore, the individual would not be considered a long-term care resident.

Due to the transition to a new data system, DPH is not able to provide an update on the total number of positive cases and deaths among staff members of Delaware long-term care facilities at this time. DPH will provide an update on this information as soon as possible.

The locations and number of deaths involving residents of long-term care facilities are:

  • Atlantic Shores Rehabilitation and Health Center, Millsboro (17)
  • Brackenville Center, Genesis Healthcare, Hockessin (17)
  • Brandywine Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Wilmington (31)

Additional demographic data on COVID-19 cases and deaths, including race/ethnicity, more age-specific data and rates information by ZIP code, can be found on the Division of Public Health’s My Healthy Community data portal.

Information about testing events, including community testing sites and free-standing sites operated by the health care systems and hospitals, will be listed on the testing section of the Delaware coronavirus website at: https://coronavirus.delaware.gov/testing/. Please note for saliva-based testing events that while long-term care facilities are listed on the Curative registration site, they are not community-based testing sites. The long-term care facility registrations are not open to the public nor to family members of long-term care residents.

If you are sick with any of the following symptoms, stay home: fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle aches, fatigue, chills, shaking with chills, loss of smell or taste. Other symptoms such as headache or digestive symptoms (vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain or lack of appetite) have been identified as potential symptoms related to COVID-19 and may prompt further screening, action or investigation. If you are sick and need essential supplies, ask someone else to go to the grocery store or the pharmacy to get what you need.

If you believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or have symptoms of illness, make sure to distance yourself from others, particularly vulnerable populations. Older adults and people of any age with serious underlying medical conditions – including serious heart conditions, chronic lung conditions, including moderate to severe asthma, severe obesity and those who are immunocompromised, including through cancer treatment – may have a higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Individuals who have complaints about individuals violating public gathering restrictions should contact state or local law enforcement. Concerns that a business may be violating operating restrictions should be directed to: HSPContact@delaware.gov. Questions related to business re-openings or operations as businesses reopen should go to COVID19FAQ@delaware.gov.

Individuals with questions about COVID-19 should call Delaware 2-1-1, individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing can text their ZIP code to 898-211, or email info@delaware211.org. Hours of operation are 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Medically related questions regarding testing, symptoms, and health-related guidance can be submitted by email at DPHCall@delaware.gov. Questions regarding unemployment claims should be emailed to: UIClaims@delaware.gov.

In addition, the Division of Public Health asks any Delaware health care, long-term care, residential, or other high-risk facility with questions or concerns to email: DPH_PAC@delaware.gov or call the DPH Call Center at 1-866-408-1899 and press ext. 2.

DPH will continue to update the public as more information becomes available. For the latest on Delaware’s response, go to de.gov/coronavirus.
