Alaska Department of Health & Social Services Weekly Case Update
April 18-24, 2021
Brief Status Report
- The statewide transmission rate and daily case rates decreased slightly from last week. Case rates more than doubled in Fairbanks but decreased in Anchorage, Matanuska-Susitna, and Juneau regions.
- Alaska is currently the twelfth most vaccinated state per capita for adults 18+. 49% of the State/IHS vaccine allocation so far has been administered.
Case Trends and Predictions
- 1,090 cases were reported in Alaskans last week. This was a 3.5% decrease from the week before. Case rates more than doubled in Fairbanks but decreased in Anchorage, the Matanuska-Susitna region, Juneau, the Northern Southeast, and Southwest regions.
- Case rates increased in the Interior region, Northwest, Southern Southeast, and YK Delta regions compared with last week.
- The estimated statewide daily growth rate as of April 25, 2021 is -0.42% and new cases are expected to halve every 164.2 days based on current modeling.
- To schedule your vaccine appointment visit covidvax.alaska.gov or call 907-646-3322. The call line is staffed Monday-Friday from 9AM-6:30PM and 9AM-4:30PM on weekends. The call line can also be used to answer general questions about vaccine safety and to request appointments to receive a specific type of vaccine. Alaskans receiving health services through a Tribal Health Organization or the Department of Defense should contact those organizations directly to determine their eligibility.
- During the week of April 18 through April 24, 2021, 1,090 cases were reported in Alaskans last week. This is a 3.5% decrease compared to the week prior for a total of 64,703
- Cumulative hospitalizations increased to 1,463 with 10 reported as occurring this week. Hospitalization reports often lag and only 1,426 hospitalizations were reported at this time last week, so there are 37 hospitalizations newly reported this week including ones that began during previous weeks.
- 12 deaths were reported this week (341 total), though all of these deaths occurred prior to April 24. It is common to take more than a week for a death to be reported, and deaths that occurred during Apr 18-24 may be reported in the future after death certificates are reviewed.
- 28 new nonresident cases were identified this week for a total of 2,723 cases.
