Dec 05 2020
After Thursday's report set a new high in Oneida County for cases reported in a single-day high with 255, the county set another new record high announcing 273 COVID positive tests on Friday.
The confirmed case rate for Franklin County is 1,045 new cases per 100,000 people for the two weeks ending November 27, the latest period for which new reported cases have been backdated to the onset of symptom or collection of samples for testing. Monday, Nov. 30, was the last time the department added less than 30 new cases in a day.
Herkimer County added 30 new positive tests, which moved the active case total back up to 281, just shy of the county's record 292, set earlier this week.
Statewide totals from the illness caused by the coronavirus are at 172,437 cases and 2,900 deaths, up from 170,342 cases and 2,850 deaths Wednesday. The United States has the highest number of reported cases and deaths of any nation.
The number of patients hospitalized locally for treatment of COVID-19 jumped to 63 on Friday.
Two additional COVID-19 related deaths are being reported in the Bitterroot. Counties meet this indicator if reporting more than 50 cases per 100,000 people over the past two weeks.
Cities with most cases: Clermont (2,891), Leesburg (1,807), Tavares (950), Eustis (916) and Mount Dora (854). It rose to an average of about 157 new cases on November 18.
Lycoming County has had 2,600 cases (2420 confirmed and 180 probable) 90 new today.
A Franklin County woman in her 60s died recently of complications of COVID-19, the Benton Franklin Health District said Friday. On Nov. 11, that average was 16 visits. There are 26 people in intensive care.
Though the county health department doesn't designate Sycamore's Opportunity House as a long-term care facility and therefore doesn't list cases linked to the facility, the state health department does.
