Nevada county’s COVID cases drop

 

New state data shows COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations dropped in Clark County and across Nevada earlier this month.

And the good news doesn’t stop there.

The number of hospitalizations for other respiratory viruses is also decreasing.

“Nevada continues to see a rapid decline in the number of people requiring hospitalization due to respiratory viruses, including COVID-19, influenza, and RSV,” the Nevada Hospital Association’s Jan. 18 weekly report said.

RSV is respiratory syncytial virus.

The county’s 14-day average of new COVID-19 cases fell to 150 from 194 the previous week, down 23 percent. The state average also dropped 23 percent to 188 from 245, according to data released Jan. 18 by the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services.

Suspected and confirmed COVID-19 hospitalizations in the county fell 19 percent, to 190 from 236. Statewide, they were down 25 percent, to 219 from 292 the previous week.

The 14-day average of new deaths per day remained at one for both the county and the state.

Respiratory viruses generally did not cause stress in Nevada intensive care units last week, according to the hospital association. The exception is pediatric intensive care units, which remain full.

Overall, emergency room visits are declining, according to the association. Eleven percent of visits were related to COVID-19 and this percentage has been steadily declining.

New data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that all counties in Nevada are experiencing low levels of COVID-19, as determined by the number of cases and hospitalizations. Clark County and several other counties in the state have been average in recent weeks.

A new high-transmission variant – the XBB.1.5, or “Kraken” as it’s nicknamed – is gaining traction across the country. However, as the latest data from the CDC shows, the number of cases and hospitalizations in the US as a whole is on a downward trend.
