LDH Updated the State COVID-19 Dashboard With New Information
The Louisiana Department of Health has updated the state COVID dashboard on their website to offer new information. The dashboard has been offering detailed information about positive cases, how many tests have been taken by residents in each parish, hospitalizations, numbers of ventilators, and more.
They have recently added new data to the dashboard to provide more detailed information. According to KATC, now you can see hospitalizations and ventilator use by region, and hospital bed and ventilator availability by region. They now offer the breakdown of cases and deaths by gender and race in each parish. They’ve also added numbers for hospitalizations broken down by the hour for each day. You can see testing by region, as well as a positive percentage by region. The state will also be adding weekly data updates on cases by race whereas before the only information available by race was deaths.
The state is providing information on “outbreaks” as well as cases and that information will be updated weekly. For example, as of now, the highest number of outbreaks is in bars with 36. There were 398 cases linked to bar outbreaks, according to the data. Tied with 16 were industrial settings and restaurants. To view the outbreaks, click here.
