COVID was 4th leading cause of deaths a year ago in Clinton County

Her death puts the number of Clark County deaths from COVID-19 at 222.

The county's data reported Monday included information since February 13.

To date, there have been 329 confirmed COVID-19 cases of the virus in the Porcupine Health Unit region.

There are now 51 local active COVID cases, with no one being treated at Brantford General Hospital.

Minnesota providers are expected to receive shipments this week of COVID-19 vaccines that had been delayed last week due to the weather.

Of the active cases, 238 individuals are now hospitalized with COVID-19, 69 of whom are in intensive care.

There have now been 15,114 county residents who have recovered from the coronavirus with the 876 recoveries recorded Monday. That number may include those who tested positive out of state but are hospitalized here.

But to make the point that 279 is still high, Bauer also compared and contrasted the current number with the first week in October when Clinton County had 40 active cases.


Zero new cases were identified on the Big Island Tuesday, according to DOH statistics. Buda has tallied 2,815 total cases and now has 130 active cases. Wimberley has counted 630 total cases, including 38 active cases. That status is reevaluated every two weeks, with an update expected later this week. Uhland has had 28 total cases. Bear Creek has amassed four total cases.

Northern Health remains without variant cases, however, there are now three in the Interior.

The new cases range in age from 7 months to 89 years with a median age of 39.

MOH's third strategy is to strengthen Covid-19 diagnostics and surveillance.

The National Public Health Emergency Team also said 340,704 doses of Covid-19 vaccine were administered up to last Friday; 214,384 first doses and 126,320 second doses.

The county's ethnic breakdown stated 49.1% of county residents diagnosed with the coronavirus are Hispanic, while 33.8% of county residents diagnosed with the disease are non-Hispanic and 17.2% don't have a specified ethnicity. We offer our condolences to everyone who has lost loved ones to COVID-19.

According to Holten, only about a half of Clinton County residents who died of COVID in 2020 died in their home county, and as a result their deaths are not included in the annual report figures.
