Dallas County is reporting 2,957 cases of COVID-19 as of Wednesday and 69 deaths.
The vaccine has been administered in Dallas County for the last two weeks. It is now available to another round of those who qualify. Read more about that here.
There are currently 410,000 confirmed cases in Alabama and 5,760 deaths related to the virus. More than 1.98 million tests were conducted as of Jan. 13, according to the Alabama Department of Public Health.
On Tuesday, ADPH said the numbers have been higher due to review of a large number of deaths from the Alabama Center for Health Statistics (ACHS) which began on Nov. 11.
"At this time, two-thirds of the deaths have been reviewed and ADPH expects this will take a few more weeks to complete. This may result in additional death numbers which are historic and do not reflect recent mortality due to COVID-19. For instance, most of the 226 deaths reported on the Data Dashboard for 01/12/21 are from review of this historic data. More deaths may be added in the coming weeks as ADPH continues its review."
Upon further investigation, some deaths may be removed from the data count, as there may be duplicate records, deaths that were reported as COVID-19 but are found not to be attributable to this virus, or in rare instances, a death may be reported and the person is not deceased.
