New COVID cases and hospitalizations drop slightly |  News

After Iowa set an all-time record for new cases last week, the number of new cases slowed a bit this week. State data showed there were 34,949 new cases reported over a seven-day period that ended on Tuesday. According to CDC data, about 35% of Iowans have not received any doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. The number of new deaths reported, however, rose from the prior week. The Iowa health department added 184 new deaths for Iowa on Wednesday. That raises the total killed by the COVID-19 pandemic to 8,501. It was the most deaths reported in a single week since February 2021.

Iowa saw about a 1% growth from last week in the number of citizens who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. There were 15,171 more Iowans that became fully vaccinated, and another 32,683 received a booster dose, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As of Tuesday, 35 children age 17 and under were hospitalized in Iowa. There were 165 patients who required intensive care statewide.

Overall, about 59.5% of Iowas are considered fully vaccinated, and 29.4% are considered “up to date” on vaccinations, meaning they’ve received a booster dose. Booster doses are recommended at least five months after a person received either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or two months after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The most hospitalized at one time with COVID-19 in Iowa was 1,510 in November 2020. On Jan. 17, there were 1,010 in the hospital with COVID-19 in Iowa.

Wapello ranks 80th in the state in terms of vaccinations, according to CDC data. As of Wednesday, 48.2%, or 16,857, of the county’s residents were fully vaccinated. Appanoose County Over the last week, Wapello County added 373 new cases of the coronavirus, state data reported. There were five new deaths reported in the county during that time period. Since the pandemic began, COVID-19 has been blamed for the deaths of 171 Wapello County residents.
