SUMMIT COUNTY –Summit County Public Health has confirmed the deaths of two Summit County residents with COVID-19, occurring on Feb. 5 and Feb. 6. 

With the addition of these cases, Summit County now counts seven deaths among cases of COVID-19. 

Summit County receives information on deaths among cases with COVID-19 from the state CEDRS database. Deaths due to COVID-19 come from CDPHE vital statistics. Based on what is written on the death certificate and in what order, a single underlying cause of death for vital statistics purposes is chosen based on an algorithm and sent back to CDPHE Vital Statistics. There is often a lag between when the death certificate is filed and when the causes of death are determined.

The data on the CDPHE website for deaths due to COVID-19 is directly from the National Center for Health Statistics Website (https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/covid-19.htm).  

Summit County will not release any further information about these deaths.

CONDADO DE SUMMIT - Salud Pública del Condado de Summit ha confirmado las muertes de dos residentes del Condado de Summit por COVID-19, ocurridas el 5 y 6 de febrero. 

Con la adición de estos casos, el Condado de Summit ahora cuenta con siete muertes entre los casos de COVID-19. 

El condado de Summit recibe información sobre las muertes entre los casos de COVID-19 de la base de datos estatal CEDRS (Por sus siglas en inglés). Las muertes por COVID-19 provienen de las estadísticas vitales de CDPHE. Con base en lo que está escrito en el certificado de defunción y en qué orden, se elige una única causa de condición preexistente de muerte para fines de estadísticas vitales con base en un algoritmo y se envía de vuelta a las Estadísticas Vitales de CDPHE. A menudo hay un retraso de cuándo se hace el registro del certificado de defunción y el momento en que se determinan las causas de la muerte.

Las cifras en el sitio web de CDPHE sobre muertes debidas a COVID-19 provienen directamente del sitio web del Centro Nacional de Estadísticas de Salud (https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/covid-19.htm).

 

El condado de Summit no divulgará más información sobre estas muertes.
