New COVID Cases Spike in Minnesota

Bennie Garza | 28 August, 2020, 04:56

Provincially, there are 68 new cases including, four epi-linked cases for a total of 5,372. So far in B.C. 5,304 people have tested positive for the disease and 203 people have died. That's the highest monthly total since April, when 52 cases were identified in the region.

Out of these active cases, 22 people are in hospital, and seven of these are in intensive care.

Updated exposure events are listed on the B.C. Centre for Disease Control website. Sheridan County has hired three part-time, temporary contact tracers using CARES Act funding. But the virus can pose more serious risks for seniors and those with health issues.

Health officials earlier this summer had noted a similar group outbreak in neighboring Lincoln County tied to a campground concert.

Funerals, tubing parties and graduation gatherings have all collectively contributed hundreds of infections, state health officials said. There are now two individuals hospitalized due to the virus.

Two ZIP codes in McHenry County (61038 and 60072) have reported five cases or fewer, according to the health department. So far, IL has conducted a total of 3,831,412 COVID-19 tests.

With drive-through sites in Burnsville, Minneapolis and Woodbury, the provider is collecting around 500 samples for COVID-19 testing each day, said Jerald Mackey, Valley Medical's manager of operations.

While almost all of the new COVID-19 cases discovered in Island Health this month have been linked to community exposures or known case clusters, one case identified on or around August 11 has been linked to worldwide travel and another case is still under investigation, according to Island health. Changes in processes will prevent future backlogs, he added. That requirement was extended in March to COVID-19 cases as well.
