COVID-19 cases and deaths
How are cases and deaths counted in North Carolina?
A “COVID-19 case” is a person who has tested positive for COVID-19. People are only counted as a case once, even if they have multiple positive tests.
As of September 25, 2020, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) began reporting on two new measures in the NC COVID-19 Panel: 1. Cases and deaths with positive antigen, and 2. Antigen tests completed. This change was made in accordance with the recently updated case classification guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
