On positive note, thorough case review removes 27 deaths from county ledger.

The Camden County Department of Health is announcing 108 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) confirmed between Saturday, Sept. 19, and Monday, Sept. 21.  Trace investigations are being facilitated with the patients and remain ongoing.

The Health Department is also announcing 27 fewer deaths caused by coronavirus as several out-of-jurisdiction and “possible” cases were removed from the tally. This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 10,451 in Camden County today and 547 total fatalities.

Patient information provided at the time of their passing is often incomplete and/or inaccurate. The Health Department investigates every suspected death caused by COVID-19 for accuracy after it has been reported. Over the course of these investigations, the Department has updated inaccurate records so that they contain correct, up-to-date information. As a result of these efforts, the breakdown of deaths per municipality has changed:
