Health officials to delay daily reports

1 more covid-19 county death reported

Daily covid-19 data will be delayed 24 hours beginning Nov. 27.

The Department of Health and Environmental Control said this is a step to improving the quality of information it provides.

This will allow more robust analysis of data before it's publicly reported.

DHEC's epidemiologists and analysts will have more time to review and validate vast amounts of data and information, verify death reports and investigate data inconsistencies or abnormalities.

 Case investigators will continue to attempt contact with all positive cases within 24 hours of our notification of their positive result.

The agency will not report daily covid-19 numbers on Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's Day.

Data for those 3 days will be provided the following day.

In Friday's report, DHEC reported 1 elderly death in Lexington County.

Statewide, 26 confirmed deaths and 5 probable deaths were reported.

1,561 new cases were reported, 76 in Lexington County..
