Number of new coronavirus cases in Mississippi remains flat, latest statistics indicate

Published 9:15 pm Thursday, November 4, 2021

The rate of new cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus remained largely unchanged Thursday as the state reported the latest statistics.

Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) officials reported Thursday that 381 new coronavirus cases were found in the last 24 hours.

The additional cases reported Thursday brings the total number of cases found in the state since the pandemic began to 506,042, meaning that 17 percent of all Mississippians have tested positive for the virus since the pandemic began.

Statistics indicate that approximately 1 in every 295 Mississippians has died from the virus.

MSDH reported no new deaths on Thursday, bringing the total death toll to 10,134.

Mississippi health leaders have said that a combination of a low overall vaccination rate among Mississippians along with a rapidly spreading Delta variant is causing the recent surge in cases.

Through Thursday, 46 percent of the total Mississippi population has been fully vaccinated. The number of fully vaccinated Mississippians has grown rapidly over the last several weeks but remains below the U.S. average of 58 percent.

The 7-day, daily average of new cases rose slightly to 290 on Thursday.

The 14-day, daily average of new cases dropped to 381 with Thursday’s update.
