In addition to UK and South African variants, Brazilian strain now on list to guard against in Garden State.

The Camden County Department of Health on Thursday reported 82 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Camden County. This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 39,764 in Camden County today and 1,068 total fatalities.

“Yesterday, Governor Murphy announced the first two cases of the highly contagious COVID-19 Brazilian Variant – P1 found in New Jersey,” said County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.

“With vaccinations underway, we are turning a corner in the fight against this pandemic, but there is still a tremendous amount of uncertainty regarding what’s ahead. This disease still has the ability to spread and cause serious illness or death. Now is not the time to let our guards down. Please keep wearing a mask and social distancing until it is safe to ease these measures.”

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