DES MOINES, Iowa — The latest numbers from the Iowa Department of Public Health show five more Iowans have died from COVID-19 and 292 new cases have been reported.

The new numbers reflect testing reported on the IDPH’s COVID-19 website over the 24 hours between 10:00 a.m. Sunday and 10:00 a.m. Monday. The newly reported positive cases and deaths may not have occurred during that time period, as the state has been adding backdated test results into the data.

The number of new positive COVID-19 tests reported for the time period brings the total number of positive tests to 319,495.

The data from the IDPH shows there have been 4,906 total deaths from the coronavirus in the state so far. Of those deaths, 2,009 were residents of long-term care facilities. There are currently outbreaks at 55 long-term care facilities in Iowa.

There are 368 hospitalized patients with the virus in the state. That’s up by 10 from the previous day. Over the last 24 hours, 41 people have been hospitalized due to COVID-19. Of the hospitalized patients, 92 are in intensive care and 28 of them are on ventilators.

Statewide, there are 3,290 inpatient hospital beds available and 385 ICU beds available. There are also 952 ventilators available across the state.

The positivity rate for the last 14 days stands at 9.9%. That is unchanged from the day before.

These results stem from testing of 1,474,034 individuals thus far.

Of the people who have tested positive for COVID-19, the IDPH reports 283,040 are recovered.

Six of Iowa’s 99 counties currently have a 14-day rolling average positivity rate at or above 15%. This is the threshold that must be met before school districts can request to go to online-only learning. The top three counties are: Kossuth 18.4%, Shelby 18.2%, Page 18.1%.

These cases represent the newest diagnosed cases and not all of the cases statewide. The IDPH provides a status report on its monitoring efforts and testing here, which includes all of the positive tests.

A new vaccine dashboard was added to the IDPH’s website late last week to keep track of the progress of COVID-19 vaccination in the state. As of 1/31/2021, a total of 254,043 vaccine doses have been administered. It is broken down further with 60,074 people who have received both doses of the vaccine and 133,895 of people who have gotten the first vaccine.

The IDPH is updating this data continually in order to provide more current information for Iowans. It includes more data about patients who are hospitalized with COVID-19, such as age break downs as well as whether the primary diagnosis or reason the patient is hospitalized, is due to the virus or another medical issue. You can find that information here.

The state is also releasing data about the outcomes of recovered patients and those who have died from the virus — like how many suffered from pre-existing medical conditions.

A public hotline has been established for questions about COVID-19 in Iowa. It is available 24/7 by calling 2-1-1 or 1-800-244-7431. If you think you have or may have had the coronavirus and want to get tested, take the TestIowa assessment here.
