Dare County reported 73 new COVID-19 cases today, setting a new single-day case record high—the day after reporting the previous record high of 52 COVID-19 cases.
Of the 73 new cases, 49 are Dare County residents and 24 are nonresidents, according to a 6 p.m. report on the Dare County Dept. of Health and Human Services’ dashboard.
The age breakdown of the 73 people who tested positive for COVID-19 is:
Age 17 and younger: nine
Ages 18 to 24: 10
Ages 25-49: 28
Ages 50-64: 20
Age 65 and older: six
We no longer are surprised by single-day case reports. We now wonder only when the December-January surge in cases will subside.
