Nassau County Emergency Management:
Nassau EMA fifth Nassau County resident with CoViD-19 has passed away. The patient was a 93-year-old male previously reported as a case. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones during their time of sorrow.
The number of positive cases can only be divided by the number of people tested. You can’t derive any meaningful number by dividing the number of positive cases by the entire population unless the entire population is tested (and they all are sequestered so they can’t get infected after sample collection). Today’s “positivity” result is 14.62% – that is the percentage of positive cases relative to the number of test results received today.
