NH DHHS COVID-19 Update – October 29, 2020

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has issued the following update on the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

On Thursday, October 29, 2020, DHHS announced 131 new positive test results for COVID-19, for a daily PCR test positivity rate of 1.1%. Today’s results include 103 people who tested positive by PCR test and 28 who tested positive by antigen test. There are now 1,106 current COVID-19 cases diagnosed in New Hampshire.

Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates. Of those with complete information, there are twenty individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 52% being female and 48% being male. The new cases reside in Rockingham (21), Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (20), Merrimack (20), Grafton (18), Coos (15), Strafford (9), Sullivan (4), Belknap (3), Cheshire (3), and Carroll (1) counties, and in the cities of Manchester (9) and Nashua (6). The county of residence is being determined for two new cases.

No new hospitalized cases were reported. There are currently 30 individuals hospitalized with COVID-19. This census may include out of state residents hospitalized in NH and/or individuals readmitted to the hospital, therefore increases in the daily hospital census may not always equal the number of new hospitalizations reported in a given day. Three of the new cases had no identified risk factors. Community- based transmission continues to occur in the State and has been identified in all counties. Of those with complete risk information, most of the cases are either associated with an outbreak setting or had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis.

DHHS has also announced four additional deaths related to COVID-19. We offer our sympathies to the family and friends.

  • 4 female residents of Hillsborough County, 60 years of age and older

In New Hampshire since the start of the pandemic, there have been a total of 10,768 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed with 775 (7%) of those having been hospitalized.
