ERIE COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH PROVIDES COVID-19 DATA UPDATE FOR WEEK ENDING JULY 22, 2021
ERIE COUNTY, NY – The Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) is providing an update on recent COVID-19 data.
Using data made available through July 22, 2021, ECDOH received reports for July 22, 2021 48 new daily COVID-19 cases among Erie County residents, bringing the total of confirmed cases in the past seven days to 249. The total new cases per 100,000 residents in the past seven days results in a case rate of 27.1, an increase over the previous week’s case rate of 18.9 cases per 100,000 residents.
Erie County has experienced a significant increase in COVID-19 cases this week compared to the previous week.
Similar increasing trends are being seen at varying levels throughout the state and the entire country.
Although there is a rise in local cases, the total number of COVID-19 cases is still well below the weekly totals that Erie County experienced throughout the pandemic, especially when comparing data from the Winter/Spring surges. However, the current increasing trend is a concern to county officials.
