The Halifax County Health Department today reported the second death related to the novel coronavirus.

Health Director Bruce Robistow declined comment on the general area where the person lived and also declined comment on age and gender.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 dashboard has not yet registered the second death in its ZIP Code database.

The health department reported the following in its afternoon update:

1,362 confirmed tests on residents; 231 cumulative positive cases since testing began; two related deaths; and 173 recoveries.

The approximate number of current cases can be calculated by subtracting the recoveries fromthe positives.

There are eight tests pending and 1,123 known negative results.

Robistow said today’s graph he provides in his daily updates shows a substantial shift upward in both the number of positive cases and the overall trend line. “Sadly, we also added one more COVID-19 related death to our report. This news provides added importance to the fact we all need to continue to practice the three W’s and also continue to follow the governor’s executive orders.”
