MSDH has estimated the number of people who can be presumed recovered from COVID-19 in Mississippi. That number is 13,356 through Sunday, June 7. This figure is updated weekly. It represents about 73.6% of the cumulative 18,109 cases reported as of Tuesday, June 8.

Based on the number of cases reported Tuesday, June 19, in Warren County (135), the estimated number of people presumed recovered is 123, or about 55.2%, with 90 active cases.

These estimates are based on MSDH’s guidelines for calculating estimated recoveries when hospitalizations are not known, using the number of cases 21 days ago, less known outcomes (deaths).

As of Tuesday, 444 Mississippians are hospitalized with confirmed cases of COVID-19, a sharp uptick from 358 reported just two days ago. Another 227 patients are hospitalized with suspected infections. Of those hospitalized with confirmed infections, 171 are critically ill and in intensive care units and 100 are on ventilators.
