CamCo reporting 46 additional coronavirus cases

Camden City, Cherry Hill the daily hot spots.

The Camden County Department of Health on Thursday revealed 46 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Camden County. This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 10,076 in Camden County today and 568 total fatalities.

“We do not know what the next stage of the pandemic will bring, but we know that our actions can directly impact the spread of this virus,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.

“Our understanding of COVID-19 is still in its infancy, but we have come a long way in understanding how to mitigate the spread of the disease. If we continue to wear masks, social distance, and work with contact tracers, we will minimize the impact of the pandemic on our community moving forward. If we reject these commonsense measures, we will have a much tougher stretch ahead of us.”

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

In addition, the county Department of Health is also announcing 1,402 confirmed resident cases and 579 staff cases have occurred out of the aggregate case load of 10,076 in our 56 long-term care facilities. At this time, 318 resident deaths have been reported from these facilities, as well as three staff deaths, out of our 568 total fatalities countywide.
