Majority of New Camden County Coronavirus Cases Are Young People – TAPinto.net

11September 2020

CAMDEN, NJ– Of Camden County's 28 brand-new coronavirus cases, 20 were people in their 20s or more youthful and another four were in their 30s.

That over 71% of the cases were young people does not shock local health authorities, who earlier this week announced a public health campaign targeting that really group.

“This week, we launched a new campaign focused on getting young locals to ‘secure your circle.' It is necessary to repeat as we see increasingly more young people infected with COVID-19 that we do not yet know the long-term implications that may arise from a coronavirus infection,” stated Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli.

Going back, a similar pattern exists throughout the state. State Health Commissioner Judy Persichilli stated previously today that the 19-24 age has the highest positivity rate at 6%. That is followed by 14 to 18 year-olds, who have a 4% positivity rate.

The term refers to the portion of individuals who test positive for the coronavirus of those total who have been evaluated – in some instances suggesting more in the community may be positive and not know.

Summer and back-to-school celebrations might, “be assisting to drive transmission,” Persichilli stated during the state's coronavirus press briefing in Trenton. “We understand youths want to interact socially. But it must be done securely.”

In Camden County– where 10,104 have actually contracted the virus and another 568 have actually died from issues– Camden city stays the town with the most cases: 2,695.

“Just due to the fact that your illness is mild does not suggest that it can not trigger major issues down the line, as other infections have been known to do,” said Cappelli. “Please keep in mind to always wear a mask, social range, and minimize close agreement with individuals who do not reside in your household.”

Murphy said during his press rundown this afternoon that New Jersey has nine more coronavirus-linked deaths and 518 cases – amounting to 195,888 cases and 16,023deaths (14,234lab-confirmed).

The Garden State has a 1.08 transmission rate, implying each brand-new case is resulting in over one more.

The guv spoke made remarks about the 19th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks – observed previously in Camden County.

“We were torn down 19 years ago today, however we got back up and showed the world how our country– even when in shock and stricken with sorrow– comes together,” said Murphy. “And perhaps, with everything we have actually been facing over these past 6 months, this is the most significant of anniversaries, due to the fact that we are now required to marshal that inner strength once again.”
