CamCo reveals 45 new cases ahead of weekend

Camden City, Pennsauken the daily hotspots.

The Camden County Department of Health revealed on Friday 45 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 9,097 in Camden County today and 549 total fatalities.

“Our residents have done an incredible job at controlling the spread of this virus. Our success is directly attributable to their hard work and sacrifice,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.

“We have seen relatively steady case totals this week, and our seven-day average has fallen back into the low 30s. We will be continuing this fight for at least another several months, but the commitment of our residents to wear masks and social distance will undoubtedly help us to avoid the worst possible outcomes.”

Trace investigations are being facilitated with the patients and remain ongoing.

In addition, the county Department of Health is also announcing 1,340 confirmed resident cases and 521 staff cases have occurred out of the aggregate case load of 9,097 in our 56 long-term care facilities. At this time, 311 resident deaths have been reported from these facilities, as well as three staff deaths, out of our 549 total fatalities countywide.
