Manchester (145), Nashua (126), Salem (65), Dover (64) and Durham (59) had the most active cases of COVID-19 Sunday.
On Sunday, Carroll and Cheshire were the only two counties in the yellow “moderate” level for community transmission of the virus. The rest of the counties Sullivan, Rockingham, Hillsborough, Merrimack, Strafford, Belknap, Coos and Grafton were listed in the red for having “substantial” community transmission.
Since Wednesday, there have been no counties listed in the green level for “minimal.”
The overall level of community transmission is defined using three metrics: new cases per 100,000 over 14 days; new hospitalizations per 100,000 over 14 days; and 7-day PCR test positivity rate.
Today’s results include 127 people who tested positive by PCR test and 122 who tested positive by antigen test. There are now 1,903 current COVID-19 cases diagnosed in New Hampshire.
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 twenty-five individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 54% being female and 46% being male. The new cases reside in Rockingham (46), Strafford (27), Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (26), Merrimack (23), Cheshire (15), Sullivan (15), Grafton (14), Belknap (7), Coos (5), and Carroll (4) counties, and in the cities of Manchester (32) and Nashua (18). The county of residence is being determined for seventeen new cases.
Four new hospitalized cases were reported. There are currently 55 individuals hospitalized with COVID-19. This census may include out of state residents hospitalized in NH and/or individuals readmitted to the hospital, therefore increases in the daily hospital census may not always equal the number of new hospitalizations reported in a given day. 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 are either associated with an outbreak setting or have had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis.
In New Hampshire since the start of the pandemic, there have been a total of 12,488 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed with 794 (6%) of those having been hospitalized.
