Westport COVID-19 Cases, Deaths Unchanged

The state also reported a 0.6% positivity rate, which is based upon 83 confirmed cases out of 13,483 tests on Wednesday.

Positivity rate is used to gauge whether a state is conducting enough testing — a lower positivity rate indicates that a state is identifying a larger proportion of its actual coronavirus cases.

For the seven-day period ending July 21, there were four COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes and 13 new cases. Among nursing home staff, there were 32 cases and no deaths. Nursing homes have been hard hit during the pandemic, with 2,848 deaths.

Among residents of assisted living facilities there was just one new case of COVID-19 and no deaths for the same period.

Also today, the state revised its case count and removed 74 previously reported coronavirus cases that were determined to be false positives.

The state Department of Public Health announced Monday that it had discovered a flaw in one of its testing systems, which led to about 90 false positive results on coronavirus tests.
