4th Summit County resident dies due to COVID-19


A #Summit #County resident died from COVID-19 earlier this month, according to the #Summit #County #Public #Health #Department. The death is the fourth in the county due to COVID-19.

The 47-year-old #Summit #County man died #Dec. 7 at #Penrose #Hospital in #Colorado #Springs due to respiratory failure brought on by COVID-19. The man also had other significant health conditions, according to public officials. #He tested positive for COVID-19 prior to his death and was transferred from #Summit #County to #Penrose #Hospital via #Flight for #Life.

“It saddens us to lose anyone in our community to this disease, and we extend our deep condolences to his family,” #Summit #County #Public #Health #Director #Amy #Wineland said in a news release.

#In addition to the four resident deaths due to COVID-19, #Summit #County also has counted two additional deaths among individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 but died of other causes.

#Summit #County receives information on COVID-19 deaths from #Colorado’s #Electronic #Disease #Reporting #System, and data regarding deaths from the disease is collected by the #Colorado #Department of #Public #Health and #Environment’s #Vital #Statistics #Program. The program determines just a single underlying cause of death for statistical purposes based on what is listed on the death certificate. There is often a lag between when the death certificate is filed and when the causes of death are determined, according to the county.

#Data on the #Colorado #Department of #Public #Health and #Environment website for deaths due to COVID-19 is available directly from the #National #Center for #Health and #Statistics at CDC.gov/nchs/nvss/covid-19.htm.
