  1. Why the disconnect between the information reported by the Iredell Health Department and information reported by NCDHHS? DHHS has reported 34 Covid related deaths in Iredell County for weeks, as deaths reported by the County continue to increase. I am not calling either into question but I am curious why the numbers do not align.
