The ADPH reported some technical issues with its data dashboard on Monday, blaming the problems on a software vendor issue that has been resolved.

“ADPH is working on these concerns and any additional testing numbers will be updated,” the department said on Twitter Monday. “Over the weekend, some case numbers from older cases was updated which contributed to an increase in COVID-19 in Montgomery and Mobile.”

The seven-day average for new cases is 1,351, according to the independent website BamaTracker. The seven-day average for deaths per day is now almost 22, per BamaTracker.

1,528 Alabamians were hospitalized with COVID-19-related illnesses Monday, according to ADPH.
