COVID-19 Update June 12

COVID-19 Update June 12

  • Salem Total: 268 confirmed cases, 1 out of every 110 residents have been infected.
  • Salem Today: 0 new cases. 59 active cases.

 

***** TODAY’S SPOTLIGHT ******

  • Globally: 7,731,673 cases; 428,210 deaths
  • US: 2,116,922 confirmed cases; 116,825 deaths.
  • NH has averaged 4.22% positive cases for the last two weeks; 2.6% in the past week.
  • Rockingham and Hillsborough counties account for 82% of all confirmed cases. Manchester has more active cases (294) than all of Rockingham County (215). Most new cases in NH still come from Manchester.
  • Another 178 NH residents were reported as “recovered” today.
  • Cumulative hospitalization numbers have gone down by one due to a previously-reported hospitalized case being removed from New Hampshire case counts after determining they were not New Hampshire residents.
  • I have removed the listing for “NH Residents hospitalized with COVID-19 that died.” Many of the nursing home patients who die are not hospitalized, so this was not a valid statistic.
  • If I’m not mistaken, it wasn’t long ago that, for every woman who died, two men were dying from COVID-19. Lately, the deaths seem to be more women. Women now account for 48.6% of the deaths; men account for 51.1%. The gender for one person who died (0.3%) is unknown.
  • NH has lost 77 people to complications from COVID-19 over the last two weeks, an average of 5.5 people per day.
