Published 10:29 am Friday, April 10, 2020

For the second day in a row, more than 200 new cases of COVID-19 were reported by the Mississippi State Department of Health.

State health officials reported 209 new confirmed cases of the virus Friday, bringing the state’s total to 2,469 cases since March 11.

The state also reported an additional 6 deaths in the state due to the virus, bringing the state’s total number of deaths to 82.

State health officials also track the number cases found in long-term care facilities such as nursing homes that are considered high risk due to their residents being in close confines, often being older and often having underlying health issues.

For the sake of reporting, the state considers even a single case of coronavirus among staff or residents of these facilities as an “outbreak” and are tracked by county below.
