COVID-19 cases decrease in county for fourth consecutive week

Posted

For the fourth consecutive week, new cases of the COVID-19 virus have decreased in Gasconade County.

“The number of new COVID-19 diagnosis per week decreased substantially for the fourth week in a row, ending the week with 31 new COVID diagnoses over the previous seven days,” according to the weekly report from Dr. Michael Rothermich at Hermann Area Distict Hospital. “Our ‘7 Day Cases Rate per 100K’ was also under 10 percent for the entire week.  Taken together, data is great news, and suggests an ongoing decrease in COVID-19 in our county.”

The group One for All Missouri reports vaccination of priority groups continues throughout Missouri, with 693,468 total doses administered in the state to date. 

Missouri continues to vaccinate residents in the groups of Phase 1A and Phase 1B, Tiers 1 and 2, One for All Missouri noted, with 8.7 percent of Missourians having received at least once dose of the vaccine, and 2.6 percent having received their second dose.

A second dose of the Pfizer vaccine is scheduled to be administered Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 20 and 21 at Hermann Middle School for those vaccinated Jan. 30-31. Hermann Area District Hospital was handling the scheduling of this round of vaccinations.

Vaccination of these priority groups will take time, One for All Missouri’s report noted. Missourians across all phases of distribution are encouraged to be patient and watch for updates from their health providers and local public health departments.
