The Alabama Department of Public Health is reporting 741,318 positive COVID-19 cases in Alabama.
The Alabama Department of Public Health is reporting 12,605 deaths related to COVID-19 in Alabama.
In the last 7 days, 68,092 people have been tested and 15,006 positive cases have been reported.
The health department is no longer reporting presumed recoveries in Alabama. This is the statement from ADPH:
Early in the pandemic, persons were presumed to have recovered from COVID-19 if they had not died more than a month after their illness onset or test date. With more recent developments in this pandemic, this estimate is less accurate. A small percentage of persons may become reinfected; and such persons could be counted twice. Additionally, some people experience a variety of post-COVID conditions more than a month after initial infection, even if they were asymptomatic. Thus, it may not be appropriate to classify persons with persistent or late onset symptoms as recovered. Post-COVID conditions are not reportable to public health at this time, so ADPH does not have data for these patients.
As of Sept. 10, there are currently 2,620 COVID-19 patients in hospitals.
