The Dare County Department of Health and Human Services reported 55 cases of COVID-19 on Jan. 13, as well as the death of the seventh county resident to succumb to the virus since the beginning of the pandemic. Of the 55 newest cases, 39 involve residents of Dare County and 16 affect non-residents. The total number of cases reported in Dare County since the beginning of the pandemic is now 2,149 – with 1,426 cases among residents and 723 cases among non-residents.
With testing levels down the last few days, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services reported 5,098 cases of COVID-19 on Jan. 13. There were 107 additional deaths reported today and the number of people hospitalized rose slightly – by 11. The percentage of positive tests out of all tests administered remains elevated at 14.7%.
Note: Every morning, the NC Department of Health and Human Services posts updates the number of reported cases of coronavirus. That number reflects positive results from all tests, including the NC State Laboratory of Public Health and all hospital and commercial labs. There may be other reports, from the media and elsewhere, that will include different numbers during a given day, but this is an effective way of tracking numbers from the same source on a day-to-day basis.
