DHEC Clarifies Recent CDC Information about COVID Deaths; South Carolina Announces Latest COVID-19 Update (September 3, 2020)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
September 3, 2020
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Today, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) is clarifying misunderstanding around newly released data from the U.S. Centers for Disease and Prevention Control (CDC) regarding deaths associated with COVID-19.
And, at random, some other highlights from the list:
The Family Hub has three internal cameras that connect to your phone to help you see what you do and don't have inside the fridge. So it's basically a $6,000 alternative to classic grocery list written on paper with a pencil.

位于芬兰赫尔辛基的开发商Remedy Entertainment通过之前的作品《英雄本色》（Max Payne）和《心灵杀手》（Alan Wake）模糊了好莱坞和游戏之间的界限。如今，这家工作室将次世代的图像技术与紧张气氛和电视剧剧本结合了起来。故事设置在Riverport大学城，玩家将控制杰克o乔伊斯和贝斯o怀尔德。这两人原本是普通人，但在一次导致时间裂缝的意外中，他们获得了操纵时间的超能力。在游戏过程中，时间体系会随时崩溃，导致环境中的时间暂停、断续、倒流和冻结。玩家在游戏中会与帝王联盟（Monarch Corporation）展开对抗，喜欢《英雄本色》中子弹时刻的玩家，可以在放大时间因素的枪战中寻找新的战略。除了虚拟的故事情节，游戏还采用了定制的实景真人叙事模式，根据玩家的不同选择将产生不同的后果。
In the example above, COVID-19, as the underlying cause of death, is the condition that triggered the cascade of events that eventually lead to death. While certain people such as older adults are more likely to have more contributing factors, if the person doesn’t contract COVID-19, then those factors don’t start the cascade of events that lead to death. Therefore, while COVID-19 infection had a significant role in causing the death in the example, it was not the only cause of death listed. As a result, that death would not count in the six percent from the CDC.
This is not new information. It’s been understood for quite some time that individuals with certain underlying conditions are at greater risk for severe illness and death, which is why DHEC provides underlying health conditions data, also called comorbidity information, for COVID-19-associated deaths on its county-level dashboard, under the “Deaths” data section.
Learn more about conditions that increase the risk of severe illness on the CDC website here. This updated data from the CDC further emphasizes the risk for people with these underlying health conditions.
Latest COVID-19 Update (September 3, 2020)

TOGETHERNESS (HBO, Jan. 11) HBO’s Sunday night comedy block already covers early-20-something New York women (“Girls,” beginning its fourth season the same night) and late-20-something San Francisco gay men (“Looking,” beginning its second). Now it adds 30-something Los Angeles straight people in this sometimes bleakly comic half-hour from Jay and Mark Duplass, the brothers behind quirky films like “The Puffy Chair” and “Baghead.” Mark Duplass and Melanie Lynskey play a married couple sharing a house with his best friend (Steve Zissis) and her sister (Amanda Peet).
More Than 480 Testing Opportunities Available Statewide
Testing for COVID-19 is essential because it helps identify people who are infected with the virus, whether or not they have symptoms, so they can isolate themselves and keep those around them from becoming infected, especially at-risk individuals who can develop life-threatening illness if they contract the virus. Identifying those with COVID-19 who have symptoms helps ensure they receive the medical treatment they need.
DHEC is working with community partners to set up mobile testing clinics and make testing available in communities across the state. Currently, there are 248 mobile testing events scheduled through October 17 and there are 236 permanent COVID-19 testing facilities across the state.
