6 a.m.: Missouri COVID-19 dashboard still being fixed

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services is working to pinpoint the cause of a “database extract error,” related to the automated entry of COVID-19 data. 

On Saturday, Oct. 10, Missouri reported more than 5,000 new COVID-19 cases, which would be nearly 3,000 more than the state’s previous record for a single day.

The health department reported Sunday that this number was wrong. 

The dashboard was last updated Saturday and is expected to relaunch Wednesday morning.
