COVID-19 Update 7 April 2021

COVID-19 Update 6 April 2021

  • Total: 2,710 confirmed cases in Salem
  • Salem today: 29 new cases in the past two days
  • 78 active cases
  • 1 out of every 11 Salem residents has been infected
  • Salem’s new cases per 100K for 14 days: 453
  • Salem’s Positivity Rate for the past 2 weeks: 7.1%

For the fourth time in 8 days, DHHS did not properly update the dashboards. Yesterday, the Interactive Dashboard was not updated. Today, the Summary dashboard didn’t update.

In recent days they have listed an email address and “o” as towns. 

This week they listed “Derr” (in addition to Derry), and Thorton (in addition to Thornton) as towns.

For some time, they have had two listings on some of the dashboard reports for Goffstown,  Somersworth, and Wakefield. Today they added a second line for Northwood.

In the past month, there have been 8 days when the vaccination numbers haven’t been updated, and there are two day when the cumulative number of vaccines went down.
Perhaps instead of changing the way the website looks, they should be concentrating on accuracy???
