Delaware County Gains Two COVID-19 Cases Monday

Delaware County gained two more COVID-19 cases on Monday.

The total case count since the pandemic began is at 65.

There are currently seven active cases. Fifty-seven Delaware County residents have recovered from the virus.

Iowa health officials said Sunday that a “significant number” of coronavirus tests were not reported over the weekend due to a backlog in the department’s electronic reporting system. The Iowa Department of Public Health said its COVID-19 website will continue to update, and noted in a news release that reported daily case counts from last week will be adjusted as it processes the backlog.

On Sunday, the Iowa website had confirmed 661 additional COVID-19 cases, bringing the total number of positive cases since the outbreak began to over 38,000. Seven additional COVID-19 deaths brought the state’s death toll to 792.
