Coronavirus cases across North Carolina are continuing to inch upward, with cases increasing by around 15% this week compared to last week.
However, the number of coronavirus cases is likely much higher, considering wastewater data shows there’s been a 40% increase in COVID-19 particles this week when compared to last week, according to data from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.
People who take at-home coronavirus tests are not required to report them to the state, which scientists say is likely skewing the state’s current data.
State data shows more than 27,000 new coronavirus cases were added this week, which by comparison to the virus’ spike in January is still relatively low.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has deemed parts of central North Carolina riskier due to higher levels of community spread.
There’s a medium risk of community spread in Alamance, Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Harnett, Lee, Orange and Wake counties, according to the CDC.
The number of people hospitalized with the virus has gone up by 20% this week compared to the previous week, but still remains relatively low.
