No new deaths: one US state shares optimistic statistics on COVID-19
According to official estimates, the state of Colorado did not report new deaths directly related to coronavirus infection for the second day in a row. Fox News.
The news came amid coronavirus mortality in Centennial State continuing to decline after a peak in mid-April, the local newspaper The Denver Post reports.
The number of hospital admissions due to COVID-19 is also decreasing, and about 297 people are currently in hospitals in Colorado. The newspaper notes that for the first time since March 27, less than 300 people have been hospitalized in the state due to coronavirus.
The changes occurred after the state revised its approach to counting deaths from COVID-19, as a result of which the figure decreased from more than 1000 to 878 in mid-May.
The decision to revise statistics came when the Colorado Department of Health acknowledged that the death toll from COVID-19 included those who tested positive for coronavirus but died from other causes.
Currently, the state divides the dead into two categories, and now in the official estimates, “mortality among patients” and “mortality from COVID-19” are listed in separate categories.
According to recent estimates, 26 cases of the new virus were recorded in Colorado, 378 people died from COVID-1181.
