UTICA, N.Y. – Oneida County is adding some demographical statistics to the coronavirus dashboard, including the age and sex of those who have tested positive.

Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente says the data is usually behind a day or so, but as statistics are continually added to the dashboard, it will update accordingly.

The data shows that 55% percent of those diagnosed were men.

The age data breaks down as follows:

  • 0-17 years old: 3%
  • 18-44 years old: 40%
  • 45-64 years old: 34%
  • 65-74 years old: 8%
  • 75+ years old: 14%
  • Unknown: 2%

Oneida County Director of Public Health Phyllis Ellis says she believes the 18-44 age range has the most cases because many in that group did not follow social distancing guidelines at the beginning of the pandemic.

“That group, and that population of people, don’t feel that they are susceptible to these kinds of things,” she said.

With the Easter holiday only a few days away, both Picente and Ellis advised against family or friend gatherings, even if people were planning to hold events outdoors. While people could still attempt to stand six feet apart outside, Ellis says there is still a risk of exposure by sharing food and furniture during a holiday party.

Picente reported 8 new cases Wednesday, bringing the county total to 129.

So far 23 people have recovered, and a total of 804 people have tested negative. There are 225 tests pending as of April 8.

There are 18 people hospitalized with the virus inside Oneida County and three people being treated elsewhere.

There are 354 people in mandatory quarantine and 392 people in precautionary quarantine. Picente says as of Wednesday, 1,100 people have been released from quarantine.
