​Data for January 6

1/8/2021

Mecklenburg County, NC – As of this morning there were 68,863 cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) with 606 deaths due to COVID-19 reported among Mecklenburg County residents.

Data as of January 6 are presented in more detail below. MCPH provides these routine updates about reported cases of COVID-19 to help our community better understand how this pandemic is developing in our county. These results only reflect laboratory confirmed cases of COVID-19 among county residents. Many individuals infected by COVID-19 have not been tested because they are asymptomatic. As such, these results are very fluid and only represent a fraction of the true burden of COVID-19 in our community.

Daily case counts provided by MCPH may differ from state and federal counts due to delays in reporting to the various entities. MCPH updates case counts after an initial case review and, where possible, a patient interview is conducted, which includes confirming county residency. Cases reported after 5 p.m. are counted in the following days case count.

Highlights about the 67,623 COVID-19 cases reported in Mecklenburg County as of January 6, 2021 include:

  • About 3 in 4 reported cases were adults ages 20 to 59 years old.

  • About 1 in 20 reported cases were hospitalized due to their COVID-19 infection. While everyone is at risk for severe COVID-19 complications, reported cases who were older adults (≥ 60 years) were more likely to be hospitalized compared to younger individuals.

  • About 8 out of 10 have met CDC criteria to be released from isolation.

  •  During the past week, an average of 793 laboratory confirmed infections per day were reported compared to the 14-day average of 699 confirmed infections. 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 508 individuals with laboratory confirmed COVID-19 infections were hospitalized at acute care facilities in Mecklenburg County. This represents an increase over the last 14 days. These data are based on daily census counts from acute care facilities in Mecklenburg County reporting to MCPH.


  • During the past week, an average of 16.0 percent of individuals who were tested in Mecklenburg County were positive for COVID-19. This represents an 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.


  • Six hundred-six deaths due to COVID-19 occurred among reported cases.
    • Almost all deaths were among older adults (≥ 60 years), 9 deaths occurred in adults ages 20 to 39 and 73 deaths were adults ages 40 to 59.
    • All deaths, except fifteen, 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 half 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 3 in 4 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.


  • Based on publicly available mobility tracking data, social distancing represents a fairly stable trend in Mecklenburg County over the last 14 days.
