COVID-19 in Montana (Sunday October 11) – KRTV Great Falls News

GREAT FALLS — There were 585 new cases and one new death added to the total on the Montana COVID-19 tracking site on Sunday morning. The data below is from the official Montana website on October 11:

  • TOTAL CASES & RECOVERIES: There have been 18,702 cumulative cases statewide, with 11,361 people recovered.
  • HOSPITALIZATIONS: There are 286 current hospitalizations, and a cumulative total of 892 hospitalizations.
  • DEATHS: The cumulative number of deaths in Montana is at 210.
  • ACTIVE CASES: The state reports there are currently 7,131 active COVID-19 cases in Montana.
  • TESTING: There were 1,609 completed tests, for a new cumulative state-wide total of 390,258.

Based on additional data from county public health departments, MTN News is reporting 218 total deaths as of Sunday. Numbers reported by the state each day occasionally differ from those reported by county public health departments due to periodic lag times in reporting data to the state. We encourage people to check the official website and/or Facebook page of their respective county health department for any information that is not yet included in the state’s daily updates.

It’s important to note that not every person who tests positive actually becomes ill or exhibits symptoms. Many do not; of those who do become sick, some experience mild symptoms and do not require hospitalization. Others, however, do require hospitalization, as noted in the daily update on the number of people hospitalized. However, every person who does test positive for COVID-19 has the potential to spread the virus to other people, including family members and friends, which is why public health officials continue to encourage everyone to wear a mask and maintain at least the recommended six feet of “social distance” when in public.

CDC: The federal Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) released data last month which emphasizes that people with contributing or underlying medical conditions are at much greater risk of dying from COVID-19. The CDC report states: “For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.” The report states that the most common underlying medical conditions that contributed to COVID-related deaths include respiratory diseases such as pneumonia, asthma, and COPD; diabetes; hyptertensive diseases; and heart disease.

The CDC also recently released an update to their research into fatality rates associated with COVID-19. A summary of COVID-19 survival rates is shown below; the summary is one of five based on several scenarios. The CDC data and scenarios can be found here.

COVID-19 Survival Rates

  • Age 0-19: 99.997%
  • Age 20-49: 99.98%
  • Age 50-69: 99.5%
  • Age 70+: 94.6%

The CDC says the scenarios are intended to advance public health preparedness and planning, and are not predictions or estimates of the expected impact of COVID-19. The parameter values in each scenario will be updated and augmented over time, as the agency learns more about the epidemiology of COVID-19. The update from September 10th is based on data received by the CDC through August 8.
