Hopkins County’s COVID-19 Total Since MidMarch: 41 Cases, 33 Of Which Are Active Cases, And 8 Have Recovered
Hopkins County Judge Robert Newsom at 6 p.m. June 10 announced 2 new COVID-19 cases in Hopkins County.
The 2 additional cases bring Hopkins County’s total since midMarch to 41 cases of COVID-19, 33 of which are active cases, with 8 individuals recovered.
Newsom explained that the number is only 41 instead of 42, because one case was erroneously counted twice in the report Monday. The mistake was discovered by the Local Health Authority’s nurse, so the county’s new case count for Monday was actually 9 instead of 10. The LHA nurse audits the COVID-19 numbers daily and checks on those cases. She contacted DSHS and it was confirmed one case was unintentionally counted twice. That was reported this afternoon, along with the 2 new cases, according to Newsom and Hopkins County Emergency Management Coordinator Andy Endsley.
The officials report 8 is the most recovered HCEMT can officially report on, although other sources have reported as many as 16 recoveries in Hopkins County. The numbers reported by the local emergency management officials are from individuals who have been cleared through the Local Health Authority as recovered.
The Local Health Authority will be checking on them to seem if they have any needs that haven’t been met.
No additional information regarding today’s new cases was available June 10 at 6 p.m.
