Of Note:

We’ve broken down the data between the first 75 days of the pandemic (between March 17 and June 3 – the last day that Mayor Vergano delivered his daily updates), and the last 56 days (from June 4 – July 29)

Of the 195 Wayne residents who have passed away due to complications of COVID-19, 86.7% were reported to the Township as having passed before June 4, while 13.3% were reported as having passed after. Please note that the dates that the township reports are the dates that they are informed of the resident’s passing and not the actual date of death.  The data from the state is often delayed before it comes to the township, so many of those who were reported as passed away after June 4 actually passed before June 4.
