New Year’s Coronavirus Spike Not as Bad as Post-Thanksgiving in Camden County – TAPinto.net

15January 2021

CAMDEN, NJ — Commissioner Director Lou Cappelli says Camden County is now seeing roughly 290 coronavirus cases each day, an 11% increase from New Year's Day.

In the two weeks preceding Thanksgiving, the county was seeing as many as 350 new cases per day, a spokesman told TAPinto Camden. 

“While this surge hasn’t appeared to hit our community quite as hard as the post-Thanksgiving spike, no one should feel good about where we are in regard to viral activity,” Capelli said.

On Friday, the county health department confirmed 339 new cases (33,084 total and 833 deaths). 

Cappelli also shared that 158 people have died due to COVID-19 in the last 30 days.

Today, New Jersey added 5,490 new cases and 67 more deaths to its total (555,299 cases and over 18,000 deaths).

“We are ready to move forward with an aggressive expansion of our vaccination efforts,” Gov. Phil Murphy said in a press briefing from Trenton. “We just need the supply from the feds to meet the demand. We are ready, they are not.”

The same sentiment was shared by officials as they opened a new Blackwood vaccine site earlier this week.
