Weekly COVID Report – Mixed Data: July 2020 -First 24 days 8 cases; Last 4 days 7 new cases

South Brunswick Office of Emergency Management Weekly COVID Report – July 28, 2020
Mixed Data: July 2020 -First 24 days, 8 cases reported; Last 4 days, 7  new cases
               Last week we recorded 3 new case, but 4 new cases in the past two days. The new cases may be part of extensive delays in national labs reporting back on test results or it could be a increase in the virus spread. We will need to watch over the next two weeks to see additional data. The New Jersey State Department of Health website continues to list South Brunswick as having the virus suppressed at this time.
                While cases remain at a low level we continue to see an increase in younger people testing positive. In just the past four days, from July 25th to July 28th, 57% of those who tested positive were teenagers or in their 20’s.  This is a marked change from early in the virus outbreak when many people who tested positive were older adults.
            Statewide, 718 people are hospitalized from COVID, down from a high of over 8000 in April. Testing results are taking longer to come back as more people are being tested, even those without symptoms. Test results can take over a week to come back.
            We currently have 457 cases of residents who have tested positive. This number reflects both residents and people living in long term care facilities in the Township. Middlesex County Health Department indicates 31 Township residents have passed away from the virus. 16 were men and 15 were women. The average age of the person who passed away from the virus in the Township is 75. Half of all the people who passed away were living in a long term care facility.
            Middlesex County has a total of 17,580 residents who have tested positive.

            The social distancing and wearing face-covering have made an impact on the number of positive cases.  Remain vigilant in protecting yourself and others by wearing face-coverings and keeping social distance.
