This report runs from Thursday, July 16 through Wednesday, July 22.

Our weekly reports have been Thursdays through Wednesdays, since Mayor Vergano stopped his daily reports in order to keep results consistent.  Looking back at the charts and breaking everything down in seven-day periods Thursdays – Wednesdays), there has not been that seven day period without at least three new deaths reported since this began in late March. We are looking forward to announcing that when it comes.

Though this week has more males than females testing positive, over the last six weeks there has been a disproportionate number of females testing positive with 31 Males and 60 Females.

The seven-day moving average for both new positive cases and deaths still remain very flat and steady.  A second wave of COVID-19 has been predicted by Dr. Charlene Gungil, the Director of Passaic County's Department of Health.  She says that we are currently in a lull and predicts the second wave to be smaller than the first and is likely to come in the fall.
