COVID-19 Numbers

After many long months of dealing with COVID-19 there are now a variety of sources of numbers about COVID-19.  The Toe River Health District publishes a variety of numbers about COVID-19 cases approximately once a week for Avery, Mitchell, and Yancey Counties on its website here.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services created a COVID-19 Dashboard with information about cases, vaccinations, testing, and hospitalizations, just to name a few.  

The graphs below were downloaded from the NC DHHS COVID-19 Dashboard, and show the cumulative percent of the population that are fully vaccinated by age group over time.  As each age group became eligible for the vaccine that group's line jumped up quickly but now have generally tapered off.


The top chart is for all of North Carolina, followed by Mitchell County then Yancey County.

These charts below will be updated about once a month; the information shown below is as of Dec 1, 2021 at 4:00am.

A notable change since these charts were first published on Oct. 25 is the red line for ages 5 to 11.  As of this writing and as shown on the first chart below, only 2% of the population of NC aged 5 to 11 have gotten fully vaccinated, but it is very encouraging that in other data available on the DHHS website that 14% of that age group have gotten their first shot.
