Mecklenburg County, NC
Data for July 8
– As of this morning, there were
cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) with 163 deaths due to COVID-19 reported among Mecklenburg County residents. Data from Wednesday, July 8 are presented below.
As of July 8, 2020, 13,285 cases of and 163 deaths due to COVID-19 among county residents were reported to Mecklenburg County Public Health (MCPH).
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 day's case count.
Highlights about the epidemiology of COVID-19 in Mecklenburg County as of July 8, 2020 include:
About 3 in 4 reported cases were adults ages 20 to 59 years old.
More than a third of reported cases are Hispanic – most of whom are younger adults. The high number of reported cases among young Hispanics over the last several weeks remains a significant concern. As previously noted, some factors influencing this trend include:
Targeted testing occurring in neighborhoods with lower access to care, some of which have larger Hispanic populations;
Higher proportions of Hispanics working in essential jobs that make social distancing difficult;
Significant household spread among large families; and
Pre-existing disparities in other social and economic determinants of health, like poverty.
MCPH continues to expand outreach to Hispanic members of our community, including increased dissemination of the
in Spanish for community partners, setting up targeted outreach to Hispanic owned- and serving-businesses, and partnering with local organizations and media outlets to spread key prevention messages.
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.
Nearly half of cases have met CDC criteria to be released from isolation.
During the past week, an average of 175 individuals with laboratory confirmed COVID-19 infections were hospitalized at acute care facilities in Mecklenburg County. This represents an
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 11.4 percent of individuals who were tested were positive for COVID-19. During the last 14 days there was a slight decline followed by a slight increase in percent positive. Overall this represents a fairly
trend over the last 14 days. These data only include tests conducted by Atrium Health, Novant Health, and CVS Health. Reporting of negative results to MCPH is not required or covered by communicable disease reporting laws. MCPH will include results from other providers and laboratories as accurate, consistent and timely reporting mechanisms are established.
One hundred-sixty-three deaths due to COVID-19 occurred among reported cases.
Almost all deaths were among older adults (≥ 60 years); 20 deaths were adults ages 40 to 59.
All deaths, except two, occurred among adults with underlying chronic illnesses.
More than 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 2 out of 3 deaths were connected to active outbreaks at long-term care (LTC) facilities.
Based on publicly available mobility tracking data, social distancing slightly increased then slightly decreased in Mecklenburg County over the last 14 days. Overall, this represents a fairly stable trend over the last 14 days.
