The Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department (LLCHD) has added new information to the online dashboard at COVID19.lincoln.ne.gov. The dashboard is updated every day at about 3 p.m. and provides information on the number of COVID-19 cases, deaths, recoveries, and tests. The new information added today, includes the following:
- Data has been added for cluster cases, which are those based on shared characteristics, primarily time and place. The dashboard shows that 45 percent of all local cases are part of a confirmed cluster of five or more cases.
- Demographic data has been added for those identified as recovered.
- Demographic data has also been added for those who have died from COVID-19. The data show the disparate impact of the virus on older adults. About 13 percent of all positive cases are among those age 60 and older, but this age group makes up 90 percent of COVID-related deaths in Lancaster County.
- Additional data has been added to the map to compare the number of positive cases and the number of tests completed by census tract.
