COVID by the Numbers, and Other Information—March 28 Edition
Statewide the numbers are up. The seven-day average of reported cases per 100,000 went from 20.1 last week to 28.2. Active reported cases went from 2,377 up to 2,766. Hospitalizations went from 72 to 76. Statewide deaths went from 18 last week to up to 20 this week. None of this is good news.
In Cheshire County, the numbers are mixed. Our seven-day average went from 19.9 up to 20.1, with an infection rate that went up from 0.87 to 0.94. Currently active reported cases held steady at 118. Cheshire County added 104 active cases this week for a total of 3,098 reported cases of COVID to date. There were 0 new hospitalizations, down from 2 last week. We lost 2 more of our citizens this week, down from 3 last week. Most county numbers are growing, but they are growing slower than elsewhere in the state.
The last phases of vaccine registration have been announced, as follows:
Anyone aged 40-49 may register starting Monday, March 29.
The web site to register is https://www.vaccines.nh.gov or you can call 211. The good part of the new web site is that you can change your appointment without having to cancel the appointment you already have.
Please keep on taking good care of yourselves, and each other. Don’t let down your guard. Be careful out there.
Wear your mask, even when keeping your distance, keep your distance-even when wearing a mask, wash your hands, and keep well.
