(KTIV) - Iowa health officials are reporting 6,224 more people have completed their vaccine series, for a total of 1,403,337 people fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The state's COVID-19 vaccine dashboard shows 2,728,256 total vaccine doses have been administered to Iowa residents.
Between 10 a.m. Wednesday and 10 a.m. Thursday, there were 70 new, confirmed cases in the state. So far, Iowa has reported 372,309 people have tested positive for the virus.
Of those who have tested positive, 363,281 have recovered, an increase of 224 in the last 24 hours.
Iowa's COVID-19 dashboard shows six additional virus-related deaths have been reported, bringing the state's total to 6,084.
Subtracting the number of recoveries (363,281) and the number of deaths (6,084) from the total number of cases (372,309) shows there are currently 2,944 active positive cases in the state.
The latest report from the Iowa Department of Public Health says there are 74 hospitalizations due to the virus, which is down from 85. Of those hospitalizations, 19 are in the ICU and 7 are on ventilators.
Because Iowa updates vaccinations numbers at 12 p.m. daily and KTIV's COVID-19 update is released before then, the vaccination numbers will be from noon the previous day.
