Mecklenburg County, North Carolina – This morning, there were 121,792 cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) with 1,000 reported deaths from COVID-19 among residents of Mecklenburg County.

Data as of August 4 is presented in more detail below. MCPH is providing these routine updates on reported cases of COVID-19 to help our community better understand how this pandemic is developing in our county. These results only reflect laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 among
county residents. Many people infected with COVID-19 have not been tested because they are asymptomatic. As such, these results are very fluid and represent only a fraction of the true burden of COVID-19 in our community.

Daily case counts provided by MCPH may differ from state and federal counts due to delays in notifying different entities. MCPH updates the number of cases after an initial review of cases and, if possible, a patient interview is conducted which includes confirmation of residence in the county. Cases reported after 5:00 p.m. are counted in the number of cases on subsequent days.

Highlights of the 121,333 COVID-19 cases reported in Mecklenburg County as of August 4, 2021 include:

  • Over the past week, an average of 394 laboratory-confirmed infections per day were reported compared to the 14-day average of 341 confirmed infections. This represents an increase over the past 14 days. These data are based on cases of residents of Mecklenburg reported to the MCPH.
  • Over the past week, an average of 166 people with lab-confirmed COVID-19 infections have been hospitalized in acute care facilities in Mecklenburg County. This represents an upward trend over the past 14 days. These data are based on daily counts of acute care facilities in Mecklenburg County under the jurisdiction of the MCPH.
  • Over the past week, an average of 12.4% of people tested in Mecklenburg County were positive for COVID-19. This represents an upward trend over the past 14 days. This data only includes ELRs for molecular testing (PCR) submitted to NC DHHS for laboratories electronically submitting negative and positive COVID-19 results.
  • A thousand deaths from COVID-19 have occurred among the reported cases.
    • Almost all of the deaths were in the elderly (≥ 60 years), 17 deaths were in adults aged 20 to 39, and 131 deaths were in adults aged 40 to 59.
    • All but twenty-seven of the deaths occurred in adults with underlying chronic conditions.
    • Almost half were non-Hispanic whites. The disparity in deaths from COVID-19 among non-Hispanic whites is linked to the race / ethnicity differences of residents of long-term care (LTC) facilities who are actively experiencing an epidemic.
    • Almost 40% of the deaths were linked to active epidemics in long-term care (LTC) facilities.
    • Among deaths unrelated to epidemics in long-term care facilities, nearly 2 in 3 were non-whites, with 40% being non-Hispanic blacks. As previously noted, these disparities are largely due to higher rates of underlying chronic diseases that increase the risk of serious complications from COVID-19 infection in these communities.

Between March 22, 2021 and July 27, 2021, MPCH received and confirmed reports of 406 confirmed cases of COVID-19 among fully vaccinated residents (
