WATCH: Maine CDC holds COVID-19 briefing
Wednesday, October 27, 2021
AUGUSTA — The Maine CDC has updated its list of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths in the state of Maine.
Maine CDC conducts case investigations and contact tracing Monday through Friday. As a result, COVID-19 case data will be updated Tuesday through Saturday. Case data will not be updated Sunday and Monday or on holidays.
Knox County, since March 2020, has recorded 2,114 cases, 53 hospitalizations and 13 deaths. This data includes an increase of 13 new cases and one new hospitalization since yesterday’s update.
Waldo County, since March 2020, has recorded 2,544 cases, 68 hospitalizations and 34 deaths. This data includes an increase of 15 new cases since yesterday’s update.
Lincoln County, since March 2020, has recorded 1,873 cases, 35 hospitalizations and seven deaths. This data includes an increase of 16 new cases and one new death since yesterday’s update.
The above data represents the number of full-time Maine residents who have been tested for COVID-19, according to the Maine CDC.
“Data are about individuals who claim residency in Maine regardless of what state they were tested in, or where they are currently living,” the Maine CDC says. “For example, an individual who claims residency in Maine but lives in Florida will appear in this data even if they were living in Florida at the time of illness. County listings are by residence of patient, not location of the hospital or testing location.”
There have been more than 105,700 confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 across the state since the outbreak began in March 2020. A confirmed case represents when SARS-CoV-2 RNA was detected using a molecular amplification test (e.g. PCR) from any approved lab.
Across the state, 1,193 individuals have passed away since the start of the outbreak after testing positive for COVID-19.
The cumulative number of people hospitalized, at some point during their illness, across the state since the start of the outbreak stands at more than 2,800.
Looking at present statewide hospital COVID-19 data, there are presently 216 hospitalized, including 79 in critical care and 41 on a ventilator.
