COVID cases take a big drop

·1 min read

Sep. 9—NORWALK — There was a big drop in the latest COVID-19 report from Huron Countuy.

There were 105 cases reported for the week of Sept. 2 to 8 — a decrease from 144 the previous reporting period.

The average age of cases decreased from 42 to 38, with the highest number of cases for this week in the 11 to 20 age range. Ten of the 11 Zip Codes in Huron County reported cases this week, with the highest infection rate in the New London (44851) Zip Code.

Case counts included in this report are estimates for the reporting period based on reports generated from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH)'s Ohio Disease Reporting System (ODRS). These data may be impacted by several factors, including but not limited to:

—Lack of reporting individual cases (for example, if a self-administered at-home test kit results positive but individual case information is not reported to HCPH or recorded in the ODRS, this case will not be counted by ODH or included in this report); and

—Reporting delays with the electronic reporting of cases, especially during surge periods.

For continued updates, HCPH reminds residents to continue to use reputable sources for information about COVID-19, including www.huroncohealth.com, www.coronavirus.ohio.gov and www.cdc.gov.
