Iowa positive case rate continues climb, now fifth in US
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa public health officials reported 356 new positive coronavirus cases on Monday, significantly lower than the daily average last week of more than 1,000 new cases and likely a reflection of lower testing over the weekend.
There also were seven additional deaths.
The state now has 92,901 positive cases since March and 1,388 deaths.
The seven-day rolling average of the positivity rate in Iowa has risen over the past two weeks and was 17.64% on Sunday, according to an Associated Press analysis of data from Johns Hopkins University. That is the fifth-highest positivity rate in the nation.
