July 7 coronavirus count: 77


According to the county commissioners’ noon update before press time Tuesday, July 7, the total active cases of COVID-19 in Emanuel has now reached 77.

There have been 172 total confirmed cases. Ninety-one patients have recovered while four have died. Altogether, 2,241 patients have been tested; 381 of those patients are awaiting results.

This week’s active count of 77 is, like several previous weeks, another increase from that of previous one. The reports from last Tuesday, June 30, were as follows:

  • 60 active cases
  • 121 confirmed cases
  • 57 recovered
  • 1,798 total patients tested
  • 304 patients awaiting results

The only number that did not increase from last week to this week is the number of deaths, which was 4 as of June 30 (and June 23) as well.

Although there has been an overall increase from last week to this week, there has been a slight decrease from this Monday, July 6, to yesterday, July 7, specifically relating to active cases. Monday’s active case count stood at 80 and decreased by 3 to 77 reported on Tuesday.

The Emanuel County Board of Commissioners remains the go-to for the most current, cumulative list of coronavirus cases here locally. The commission works jointly with Emanuel Medical Center, East Georgia Healthcare Center, and the health department to provide an update everyday Monday through Friday at noon on Facebook.
