In total, 388 Delawareans, aged 21 to 103 years old, have passed away due to complications from COVID-19,  206 were females and 182 were males. A total of 173 people were from New Castle County, 71 were from Kent County, and 144 were from Sussex County.

Long-term Care Statistics 

Information related to positive cases and deaths among residents at long-term care facilities are updated weekly each Friday, using information reported as of 6 p.m. Thursday. There have been a total of 990 positive COVID-19 cases involving long-term care residents, and 247 residents of Delaware long-term care facilities have died from COVID-19.

Officials say a quality review of the long-term care case data resulted in an adjustment to the total number of cumulative cases among long-term care residents, raising the total count. In addition, after further consideration, DHSS has removed Delaware Psychiatric Center DPC from the list of long-term care facilities with COVID-19 related cases and deaths. DPC is an acute-care facility rather than a long-term care facility. Due to this change, DPH has removed three deaths from the total number of deaths among residents of long-term care facilities.
