Updated COVID-19 state website unveiled

first_imgJOHNSTON — During her daily press conference this morning, Governor Kim Reynolds reviewed the newly-arranged COVID-19 data on the Iowa Department of Public Health’s website.“Yesterday I announced a significant update to the coronavirus.iowa.gov website where we’re now rolling Iowa’s COVID-19 numbers in real time. The latest update allows you to see case counts for the current day and look back at the numbers for any day since we began testing in early March. You can see trends for the state as a whole and individual counties. You can review data on specific demographics, recovered cases and reported deaths, and see results from serology testing.”Reynolds encourages Iowans to work their way around the website and learn more about the data available.  “From the homepage of coronavirus.iowa.gov, click on current cases in the main navigation or just scroll down the page. The four graphs you see provide an at-a-glance view of individuals tested, individuals positive, total recovered and total deaths. Each bar graph provides the numbers of each individual day and includes a rolling 14-day trend line indicating what’s happening over time.”Reynolds says people can see trends easier with the update on the website. “While the numbers of Iowans testing positive are trending down, the number of individuals testing negative is trending up. In fact 1 in 34 Iowans test negative compared to 1 in 206 who test positive. We’ve also seen the percentage of individuals testing positive over time decrease gradually over the last two weeks. Currently our average positivity rate over time is 14.3% and yesterday’s rate was 7.1%.”The state COVID-19 website is coronavirus.iowa.gov.last_img read more
