The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) launched a new coronavirus tracking tool.
The new webpage provides an at-a-glance view of several important data elements used to assess measures of impact from COVID-19 in South Carolina, including information for the current day, previous day, and previous 14 days. The data elements represented in the dashboard include:
- Rate of cases per 100,000
- Rate of tests per 100,000
- Percent positive
- Deaths by date
- ICU hospitalizations
- COVID-19 patients
DHEC officials say it’s important to note that one of these data elements should not be viewed as more important than another; instead these elements should be viewed together as a whole to provide an overview of South Carolina trends.
