Three more Dare County residents have died from COVID-19, the Dare County Dept. of Health and Human Services reported today on its dashboard.

The DCDHHS gave no personal details about the people who died, but a reduction in the number of hospitalizations on the dashboard suggests all three were hospitalized at the time of their deaths.

Since Christmas, 12 local residents have been hospitalized with COVID-19, according to DCDHHS dashboard records. Nine of them have been people age 65 or older.

The dashboard also reported today 16 new COVID-19 cases in Dare County, 11 of them local residents.

Since March 2020, 10 Dare County residents have died because of COVID-19. We extend our condolences to all who are grieving the lives that have been lost.

THE BEACON, 2/3/21
