23 New COVID-19 Deaths; NH DHHS Doesn’t Respond To InDepthNH Questions

Print More

Editor’s note: NH DHHS hasn’t responded to questions about the increase in COVID-19 deaths. Before the Thursday weekly update was emailed to reporters as is usually done, InDepthNH.org emailed DHHS spokesman Jake Leon, Dr. Ben Chan and a public information email at 2:30 p.m. trying to set up a time to get answers today. They did not respond by 6:30 p.m. Here is the email I sent: “Jake when the numbers come out today I would like to talk to Dr. Chan about what they mean, what is this new strain, how many of the deaths are in long-term care facilities, what efforts are being made to help with the expected surge and what other illnesses are straining hospitals and (nursing) homes. Thanks Nancy West” InDepthNH.org plans to start asking the questions about COVID-19 on Twitter. There are a couple more questions that people have been asking InDepthNH.org such as how many of the people who are dying or in the hospital being treated for COVID-19 have been vaccinated. – Thanks, Nancy West
