There are now 456 current COVID-19 cases diagnosed in New Hampshire. Today’s results include 80 people that tested positive by PCR test and 19 that tested positive by antigen test. The number of new cases reported today is increased due to the inclusion of antigen test results, as well as delayed reporting of 22 PCR test results from one laboratory. The 22 cases related to the delayed reporting are not included in our active case counts or in our positivity rate.
Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates. Of those with complete information, there are 16 individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 61% being female and 39% being male. The new cases reside in Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (23), Rockingham (9), Strafford (7), Merrimack (3), Belknap (2), Carroll (2), and Grafton (2) counties, and in the cities of Manchester (35) and Nashua (16).
No new hospitalized cases were identified today. There are currently 20 individuals hospitalized with COVID-19. Twelve of the new cases had no identified risk factors. Community-based transmission continues to occur in the State and has been identified in all counties. Of those with complete risk information, most of the cases have either had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis, have recently traveled, or were associated with an outbreak setting.
In New Hampshire since the start of the pandemic, there have been a total of 8,534 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed with 743 (9%) of those having been hospitalized.
The total number of cases now includes 139 people who, dating back to July, had a positive antigen test, including 5 hospitalizations and one death in the first week of September, a female resident of Rockingham County 60 years of age or older.
DHHS has been tracking and investigating all reported positive antigen tests since this testing method first became available in New Hampshire but these results were not included in daily case counts because they did not meet national confirmed case criteria. Although national criteria have not changed, DHHS is now including positive antigen tests due to the increasing use of these tests Statewide.
