Montana reported nine new deaths and 819 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, according to the state's database.

The state also reported the following data Sunday morning:

  • HOSPITALIZATIONS: There are 458 current hospitalizations, and a cumulative total of 1,477 hospitalizations.
  • DEATHS: The cumulative number of deaths in Montana is now 456.
  • ACTIVE CASES: There are 15,430 active COVID-19 cases in Montana.
  • CASES & RECOVERIES: There have been 39,679 cumulative cases, with 23,793 people listed as recovered.
  • TESTING: There were 1,415 completed tests, for a cumulative state-wide total of 526,591.

Numbers reported by the state each day occasionally differ from those reported by county public health departments due to periodic lag times in reporting data to the state. We encourage people to check the official website and/or Facebook page of their respective county health department for any information that is not yet included in the state's daily updates.

CONTEXT: Not every person who tests positive actually becomes ill or exhibits symptoms. Many do not; of those who do become sick, some experience mild symptoms and do not require hospitalization. Others, however, do require hospitalization, as noted in the daily update on the number of people hospitalized. However, every person who tests positive for COVID-19 has the potential to spread the virus to other people, including family members and friends, which is why public health officials continue to encourage everyone to wear a mask and maintain at least the recommended six feet of "social distance" when in public.

The federal Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) released data in late August which emphasizes that people with contributing or underlying medical conditions are at much greater risk of dying from COVID-19.

A summary of COVID-19 survival rates is shown below; the summary is one of five based on several scenarios. The CDC data and scenarios can be found here.

COVID-19 Survival Rates

  • Age 0-19: 99.997%
  • Age 20-49: 99.98%
  • Age 50-69: 99.5%
  • Age 70+: 94.6%

The CDC says the scenarios are intended to advance public health preparedness and planning, and are not predictions or estimates of the expected impact of COVID-19. The parameter values in each scenario will be updated and augmented over time, as the agency learns more about the epidemiology of COVID-19. The update from September 10th is based on data received by the CDC through August 8.
