The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services released their daily update involving COVID-19 cases within the state.
As of Sunday, there are now 211,961 cases, 907 people hospitalized and 3,634 COVID-19 related deaths.
That is 558 new cases, 14 fewer hospitalizations and 5 additional deaths from Saturday.
According to the NCDHHS, on October 4, the department experienced technical issues which prevented some laboratory data files from being processed in the NC COVID reporting system. As a result, cases and test data are lower for October 4 than they would have been had all data been processed.
Data reported on October 5 will be higher, as it will incorporate cases that were intended to be submitted on October 4.
NCDHHS is working to resolve the issue.
A total of 3,155,433 total COVID-19 tests have been completed in North Carolina.
Here's the breakdown of confirmed cases in local areas:
