‘Devastating’: 5 more coronavirus deaths make this the deadliest weekend in Onondaga County –


” Another positive,” McMahon wrote, “the vaccine will be dispersed to nursing home locals this week. We will get through this.”

” This has been a destructive week for our neighborhood,” McMahon composed.

Syracuse, N.Y.– Another five individuals passed away in Onondaga County this weekend in addition to the 11 deaths reported Saturday– making this the most dangerous weekend here given that the coronavirus pandemic began.
” Sadly we had another brutal day,” Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon stated on social media this afternoon.
Considering that March, 304 individuals here have actually passed away since of the coronavirus, according to the county.

The only other day the toll was greater was back in May. That spike came after state officials announced nearly 20 nursing house deaths in one day, rather than as they actually took place.

In general, 30% of the people hospitalized now are nursing house citizens, he said.

Simply 4 of the new cases were traced to K-12 schools. Two of those 4 involved students who checked positive, according to McMahon.

Four of the people who passed away most just recently were hospitalized, he composed. 3 were men, ages 82, 81 and 77. A 94-year-old lady also passed away.

Hospitalizations today were up by two clients, for an overall of 261. Of those, 47 individuals remained in extensive care.

That means there are simply 230 hospitalized clients still being treated for Covid-19, a sign of hope, McMahon tweeted.

The fifth person died in retirement home, which the state supervises.

And its been a devastating month: 1 in 4 coronavirus cases validated here because March have been identified in December.

Another 31 people hospitalized are all set for discharge but must initially check negative before going back to their residences inside assisted living home.

Saturday was the most dangerous day given that the pandemic began, with 11 deaths reported by McMahon.

The second-worst weekend was May 16 and 17, when a total of 12 deaths were reported.

Today, the county reported another 400 recently confirmed cases. About 10% of those– 43– related to senior living centers, according to McMahon.
