During the past week, an average of 528 laboratory confirmed infections per day were reported compared to the 14-day average of 500 confirmed infections, health officials said. This represents an increase over the last 14 days. These data are based on Mecklenburg resident cases reported to MCPH.

During the past week, an average of 368 individuals with laboratory confirmed COVID-19 infections were hospitalized at acute care facilities in Mecklenburg County, local health officials said. This represents an increase trend over the last 14 days. These data are based on daily census counts from acute care facilities in Mecklenburg County reporting to MCPH.


NC lags behind national average for nursing home staff vaccinations

During the past week, MCPH said an average of 13.2 percent of individuals who were tested in Mecklenburg County were positive for COVID-19. This represents a slight increase trend over the last 14 days. These data only include ELRs for molecular (PCR) tests submitted to NC DHHS for laboratories electronically submitting negative and positive COVID-19 results, health officials said.

1,021 deaths due to COVID-19 occurred among reported cases:

Almost all deaths were among older adults (≥ 60 years), 17 deaths occurred in adults ages 20 to 39 and 138 deaths were adults ages 40 to 59.
All deaths, except 27, occurred among adults with underlying chronic illnesses.
Almost half were non-Hispanic Whites. The disparity in COVID-19 deaths among non-Hispanic Whites is related to differences in race/ethnicity of residents of long-term care (LTC) facilities actively experiencing an outbreak.
Nearly 40 percent of deaths were connected to active outbreaks at long-term care (LTC) facilities.
Among deaths not connected to outbreaks at long-term care facilities, nearly 2 in 3 were non-White, with 40 percent being non-Hispanic Black. As previously noted, these disparities are largely driven by higher rates of underlying chronic conditions that increase risk of severe complications due to COVID-19 infection among these communities, MCPH said.

Between March 22, 2021 and August 18, 2021, MPCH received and confirmed reports of 432 confirmed cases of COVID-19 among fully vaccinated residents (<1% of fully vaccinated residents).

“This does not represent all breakthrough cases, as these are based on self-report during case investigations following COVID-19 diagnosis. Vaccination status is confirmed using the NC COVID-19 Vaccination Management System (CVMS),” MCPH clarified on Friday.
