The Halifax County Health Department is aware of 953 confirmed novel coronavirus tests which have been performed on residents.
The breakdown is as follows:
167 positive cases; one related death; 109 recoveries.
Health Director Bruce Robistow said the 167 positive cases reflect individuals and not people who have been tested multiple times.
The approximate number of current cases can be calculated by subtracting the number of recoveries from the total positive cases.
There are 26 tests pending and 760 known negative results.
Today’s report indicates there were three new positive cases today and three on Wednesday, Robistow said in his afternoon update, which notes not much of a change in the trend line which remains downward. “Please continue to practice the three W’s — waiting 6 feet in line, handwashing and wearing a mask in public — and also continue to follow the governor’s executive orders.”
As of this report, the Northampton County Health Department had not updated its numbers.
