In late July, COVID increase here is higher since February |  News

Willard said that nationwide, about 83% of recent COVID-19 tests coming back positive were the Delta variant. The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services reported that over 75% of positive COVID-19 tests statewide in recent weeks were the Delta variant, said Willard. She added that the testing sample is less than 10% of all tests. Willard reported seeing a slight increase recently in children 18 and younger with COVID-19 in Wilkes, but the age range with the most cases locally is 25-49.

The News & Observer in Raleigh reported that average new daily cases rose six-fold in July statewide due to the spread of the Delta variant, a more transmissible form of the virus that causes COVID-19. State officials say this has occurred largely among people not vaccinated. Similarly, daily increases in Wilkes in the last week of July were the largest since February.

Wilkes County Health Director Rachel Willard said she doesn’t have any local data on COVID-19 variants. From July 28 to July 29, North Carolina had its largest one-day rise in COVID-19 cases since February. There were 3,268 new cases reported statewide on July 29, up 635 from Wednesday’s 2,633 new cases.

Wilkes County Health Director Rachel Willard said that as of July 30, there were no COVID-19 outbreaks or clusters in Wilkes. Willard said the county’s positivity rate on COVID-19 tests averaged roughly 12% in the two weeks ending July 30. Wilkes County’s COVID-19 death total has been 117 since June 24, except for a few days in late June and early July when the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services reported 118 and then dropped back to 117.

Seventeen new COVID-19-related deaths in North Carolina were reported July 30, the largest daily increase since early May. There were 16 reported July 28 and 12 on July 29. “We are also starting to see some break-through COVID cases, and are watching those closely,” said Willard, referring to vaccinated people testing positive for COVID-19.
