The North Carolina Department of Heath and Human Services reported 4,633 cases of COVID-19 on Jan. 25, only the second time this month that fewer than 5,000 cases were reported in a single day. Hospitalizations continued to decline, falling below the 3,300 mark today (3,287) while the percentage of positive tests out of all tests administered dropped slightly to 10.2%.
The Dare County Department of Health and Human Services reported only 6 cases of COVID-19 on Jan. 25, the fewest cases since 4 were reported on Jan. 18. All six of the cases involve Dare County residents who are isolating at home.
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.
