Another Dare County resident has died from COVID-19, the Dare County Dept. of Health and Human Services reported today.
The person is described on the DCDHHS’s COVID-19 dashboard only as having been hospitalized at the time of his or her death.
Since last March, 11 Dare County residents have died as a result of COVID-19–four of them just this week. (See The Beacon, 2/3/21.)
The DCDHHS’s next COVID-19 update should be next Tuesday. Perhaps then we will learn if the four latest deaths were of residents at the Peak Resources nursing home and rehabilitation center in Nags Head, where DCDHHS Director Dr. Sheila Davies recently confirmed a COVID-19 outbreak.
