Hopkins County has a 6th confirmed case of COVID-19, according to Hopkins County Emergency Management. In White County there have been 19 hospitalizations and no reported deaths, according to the Georgia DPH.
Additionally, a 33-year-old woman tested positive for COVID-19 and two individuals in contact with her, a 37-year-old man and 44-year-old woman, have all been reported to have the coronavirus. This, like the first case reported earlier today, is one of the 3 pending tests in Hopkins County.
The person is isolated at home, and health officials are working to figure out how they may have become infected. On Saturday, May 2, there were 73 confirmed cases with the 11:30 a.m. update. HCEM announced the 5th case earlier today.
Nebraska's total number of cases including the new report today totals 4,856 according to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. Confirmed patients are listed based on their residence. The CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.
In some cases, the disproportionality was small: Black people are 16% of the county's population and 19% of the county's coronavirus deaths.
