DHEC announces 1,445 new cases of COVID-19, nine additional deaths reported in SC – WIS10

“DHEC issued a Public Health Order supporting the shift from NHSN to TeleTracking on July 15, and DHEC is keeping track of medical facilities as they actively make the transition in their reporting. Our daily reporting on medical facility bed tenancy may differ from how it has actually been reported as hospitals work to become compliant with the general public Health Order and implement the TeleTracking system. Healthcare facility bed occupancy, ICU occupancy, ventilator usage, and other crucial info continue to be kept an eye on by DHEC throughout this transition.”
