2.22 Harvard risk map

There’s a little hint of green on the Iowa map Monday — the Harvard COVID-19 risk assessment map, that is.

Two Iowa counties — Floyd and Pocahontas — have moved into the green phase of the Har vard map, indicating they have less than one case of COVID-19 per 100,000 people.

Warren County, meanwhile, remains in the orange level, with 10 to 24 cases per 100,000 people. According to the Harvard assessment, the county is averaging 20.3 new cases per 100,000 people over the last seven days. The county has been averaging 10.4 new cases of the virus over that same period.

The county added 16 new cases on Monday, with 50211/Norwalk adding six and 50125/Indianola adding five, according to the Warren County Health Services zip-code specific map of cases.

Des Moines/50320 added two cases and 50047/Carlisle, 50210/New Virginia and 50061/Cumming added one each, according to the Warren County map.

The county has had a total of 5,478 cases of the virus since the pandemic began, reported the Iowa Department of Public Health on Monday.

The county’s death toll crept up to 70, with one additional death. The state web site also reports that 9,362 injections of the COVID-19 vaccine have been given to Warren County residents, an increase of 475 shots since Friday. Of those, 6,893 shots have been given within the county.

The site says that 2,238 people have completed the two-shot regimen.

Simpson College did not report any new cases of the virus Monday, according to the Simpsonian, the college student newspaper. That marks a week since the school has reported a new case.
