The Dare County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) reported 10 cases of COVID-19 on April 12, the most cases in a single day since April 1. Of the 10 cases, 7 involve residents of Dare County and 3 involve non-residents. All of the individuals are isolating with the virus.
The past week saw a number of days with COVID case counts in the low single digits and a few days of higher counts, such as today. The percentage of positive tests out of all tests administered — which will be updated for the past week on April 13 — should tell us a bit more about the current state of viral transmission in the county.
Today’s data from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is the first such report since Friday April 9. Thus, this dashboard includes case numbers for the past three days.
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.
