Good Morning, Mission! Welcome to Virus Village, your daily Covid-19 data dump.
The ten new deaths added to today’s total do not represent a “daily” death count as deaths are reported after a week or longer delay. For example, DPH now reports the 412 figure reported yesterday reflected the total as of February 12, and the “real” figure yesterday was 421. Information provided on who died when remains sketchy at best, and and the role of underlying conditions has become progressively more murky.
