Dare County has reported three more COVID-19 cases today, bringing the day’s total to six cases, and the overall total to 32 cases, according to the Dare County Dept. of Health and Human Services’ dashboard.
Unlike the three earlier reported cases—all of whom were young, with two being just 17 years old—all three new patients are between the ages of 50 and 64, the dashboard reports.
Two of the new patients are Dare County residents and are currently in home isolation. The third patient has been transferred to his/her home county for isolation.
Two of the newly recorded cases are women, and one is a man. The three cases reported earlier today were those of two males and one female. (See The Beacon’s preceding post.)
We hope that Dr. Sheila Davies, the director of DCDHHS, will provide more details during her videotaped update Tuesday about the means of viral transmission and the testing circumstances of each case.
Ten people have tested positive for COVID-19 in Dare County during the past week–more than 50 percent of the total number of positive tests during the previous three months.
