Case updates December 6, 2020; State DOH dealing with backlog and unresolved duplicates

Tuesday, December 8, 2020

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) is announcing 6,972 new cases of COVID-19 today in the state, a number that reflects both a backlog of COVID-19 positive lab test results received over the weekend and approximately 1,800 duplicates that have not yet been resolved.

DOH has caught up with processing most of the backlog in positive COVID-19 test results created by temporary system slowdowns last week. Those slowdowns occurred as a result of upgrading servers. The high number of new cases reported today partially reflects the backlog created by these delays.

DOH estimates there are up to 1,800 duplicate cases in today’s total case counts. These duplicates will be removed from the dataset in the future as we catch up on our deduplication process.
