The Department of Health has released its weekly epidemiology report for the week of July 11-17.

The report broke the data for cases, deaths and hospitalizations. The report has also broken down the data by age groups.

In the past week, there was an increase in pediatric hospitalizations with 17 pediatric admissions. In the age group under 1 and up to and including 4 there were six new registrations.

The age group of 5 to 11 had only one, but the group of 12 to 17 had the most with 10 new hospitalizations. Those 10 admissions were higher than the 18 to 24 age group. That age group had nine hospitalizations.
