Dr. Nirav Shah explained that when the Maine CDC reports deaths, they are reporting that somebody has actually died who had been verified positive with COVID-19, not the cause of death specifically. The cause of death determination is left to the medical examiner. According to Maine CDC Director Dr. Nirav
Shah, since a few days earlier, there were roughly 2,900 Mainers evaluated each week. This consists of individuals tested through the state lab in Augusta, in addition to large business screening business like LabCorp. Dr. Shah said today, the positivity rate is over 5%, suggesting for every 100 individuals tested, about 5 or 6 are favorable. Compared to other states, whose positivity rates are 10 or 15%, Maine is doing much better, Dr. Shah states. He says he ‘d like to see Maine’s positivity rate around 2%, which is what South Korea’s is. To do that, Dr. Shah states screening needs to increase two or three-fold.
