Covid-19 Update 2.01.2022

Hospitalized:        7

Active:                 24

Deaths:                18 (1 Vaccinated)

Total Cases:    1,859

Recovered:      1,835

WPC Vaccinated > 5 years old: 49.31%

Most common symptoms: Headache, Sore/Scratchy Throat, Dry Cough, & Runny Nose. Treat as you would any other sickness & according to medication packaging and doctors recommendation.

Hospitalized: While this number has grown, it should be noted that the severity of the cases have decreased for the most part. Some patients are legitimately sick with Covid, while others were found to be positive because of testing requirements. Hopefully, all will have a quick recovery!

Testing: Testing is limited, but there are choices available within our community. Did you know you can even request free tests from the CDC? These tests can be performed at home! All the Clinics and the Hospital still provide vaccinations, call and check them out!

Treatment: William Bee Ririe Hospital has received a shipment of Sotrovimab, which is a monoclonal antibody to boost immunity in fighting Covid-19. We have seen good results in our community in those who have underlying health conditions, and those who might progress to severe symptoms without some additional help.

SICK?   Please stay home for a 5 day quarantine.

                                                                                   -Stay Healthy & White Pine Strong: Dr. Daren Kunz WPC Public Health Officer
