The latest data …

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) released updated data related to the coronavirus pandemic on Monday (July 20, 2020).

Here is a breakdown of the latest numbers …

New Positive Cases: 1,445 (2 probable)
Daily Percent Positive Rate: 17.7 percent
Total Positive Cases: 71,213 (232 probable)
New Deaths: 9
Total Deaths: 1,147 (17 probable)
Case Fatality Rate: 1.61 percent
Hospital Occupancy Rate: N/A
Covid-19 Hospitalizations: N/A
Patients On Ventilators: N/A

Why is there no new data on those last three indicators? Unfortunately, this is the third day in a row SCDHEC has failed to provide information on hospital occupancy, Covid-19 hospitalizations or the number of patients on ventilators. According to the daily release, the agency is blaming the failure on its ongoing efforts to conform with federal reporting standards.
