SALT LAKE CITY — Utah's number of COVID-19 cases increased by 344 on Sunday, with 19,328 more vaccinations administered and no new deaths, according to the Utah Department of Health.
The rolling weekly average for positive COVID-19 tests is now at 396 cases per day, the health department says. The positive test rate per day as calculated by the "people over people" method is now 7.2%. The positive test rate per day as calculated by the "test over test" method is now 3.6%.
There are now 43 Utahns hospitalized with COVID-19, with 15,760 total hospitalizations since the beginning of the pandemic. However, this number is artificially low because the state has identified a reporting issue with one of their healthcare systems that impacts the Daily Hospitalization Survey data. The error is expected to be fixed by Monday.
A total of 1,703,065 vaccine doses have been administered in the state, up from 1,683,737 on Saturday. A total of 1,099,828 Utahns have now received at least one vaccine dose.
