Martha’s Vineyard officially passed the 100-case count for total coronavirus patients on Friday, with Island health officials recording two new positive Covid-19 patients.

The two new cases on Friday - one tested at TestMV, the other at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital - bring the Island’s total case count to 101, with 77 of the cases representing laboratory positive tests. The other 24 patients have either been symptomatically diagnosed with the virus or tested positive for viral antibodies.

Meanwhile, Nantucket’s spike in coronavirus cases has refused to relent since Labor Day. The Island reported five new positive coronavirus patients on Friday, marking 34 new patients in the last week and 149 positive laboratory tests overall. Five patients have now been transferred off-Island from Nantucket Cottage Hospital, including three this month.

On Island, the two new cases Friday - one male, and one female - marked the second and third cases this week. They are the only two currently active cases on the Island, according to a more detailed weekly board of health report that comes out on Friday. The third case has been completed and referred to an off-Island board of health. Five cases have now been referred to off-Island boards of health.

Testing has also continued at a rapid clip on the Island, with TestMV and the hospital combined passing the 20,000 tests threshold this week. According to the board of health report, TestMV has conducted 15,489 tests since opening in late May, and the hospital has conducted 5,099. Of the 77 positive laboratory tests recorded on the Island, 29 have come from the TestMV site, and 47 at the hospital.

TestMV is focused on asymptomatic virus testing, while the hospital continues to test symptomatic patients and their close contacts for the virus.

The age breakdown for cases on-Island is as follows: 11 under 20; 16 in their 20s; 14 in their 30s; 4 in their 40s; 17 in their 50s; 11 in their 60s; and four over the age of 70.

Advanced metrics from a weekly board of health update show that the Vineyard has maintained a 0.3 per cent positive test rate in recent weeks, much lower than even the state average of 0.8 per cent. Nantucket’s positive test rate is approximately 5.8 per cent, according to data from the hospital.

No one is currently hospitalized with the virus on the Island.
