By , Columbian Metro Editor

Clark County recorded 33 new COVID-19 cases and no new deaths on Friday as weekly totals ebbed, according to Clark County Public Health.

The new cases bring the county’s total 304 new cases for the week and 4,410 cases to date, according to Public Health Data.

That weekly total works out to an average of about 43 cases per day, down 4.7 percent from the previous week.

The county’s total deaths from COVID-19 remained at 66, according to Public Health. The last death was reported on Tuesday; the last death before that was reported on Oct. 14.

The number of active cases, which tracks people with COVID-19 who are still in their isolation period, rose slightly to 173 on Friday.

The number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 fell to 18, and the number of people hospitalized awaiting test results fell to seven.

The pace of new COVID-19 cases picked up in October after leveling off in the summer, raising concerns that a predicted fall surge in cases was beginning.

Weekly case totals have risen from 149 new cases in the seven days ending Aug. 28 to a peak of 319 new cases in the seven days ending Oct. 16.
