JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - ABC News obtained the latest report from the White House that outlines Mississippi’s current status with COVID-19 and provides recommendations to further combat the virus.

The report is dated Sept. 20.

The following summary is from the report:

  • Mississippi is in the red zone for cases, indicating 101 or more new cases per 100,000 population last week, with the 16th highest rate in the country. Mississippi is in the yellow zone for test positivity, indicating a rate between 5.0% and 7.9%, with the 15th highest rate in the country.
  • Mississippi has seen stability in new cases and a decrease in test positivity over the last week as a whole, but with specific counties increasing.
  • The number of red zone counties are increasing again.
  • The following three counties had the highest number of new cases over the last 3 weeks: 1. DeSoto County, 2. Lafayette County, and 3. Harrison County. These counties represent 18.6% of new cases in Mississippi.
  • 65% of all counties in Mississippi have moderate or high levels of community transmission (yellow, orange, or red zones), with 27% having high levels of community transmission (red zone).
  • During the week of Sep 7 - Sep 13, 18% of nursing homes had at least one new resident COVID-19 case, 28% had at least one new staff COVID-19 case, and 6% had at least one new resident COVID-19 death.
  • Mississippi had 110 new cases per 100,000 population in the last week, compared to a national average of 86 per 100,000.
  • Current staff deployed from the federal government as assets to support the state response are: 5 to support medical activities from VA.
  • Between Sep 12 - Sep 18, on average, 62 patients with confirmed COVID-19 and 58 patients with suspected COVID-19 were reported as newly admitted each day to hospitals in Mississippi. An average of 89% of hospitals reported either new confirmed or new suspected COVID patients each day during this period; therefore, this may be an underestimate of the actual total number of COVID-related hospitalizations. Underreporting may lead to a lower allocation of critical supplies.
