DES MOINES — The number of active cases of COVID-19 in our listening area is up after it appears some of the numbers of recovered cases in the area have had a correction.
Starting on Friday morning, the number of recoveries in several north-central Iowa counties dropped. For example, the number of people recovered in Cerro Gordo County observed on the state’s coronavirus website on Thursday stood at over 1000, but as of Sunday morning, was at 991.
KGLO News has made an inquiry with the Iowa Department of Public Health in regards to why the numbers have changed, but the department has not responded to our request for comment.
As of 11 o’clock on Sunday morning, there were 831 active cases of COVID-19 in our listening area, up from 710 on Thursday morning. Statewide as of Sunday morning, the state had 107,057 cases of COVID-19 and a total of 1538 deaths.
