Mississippi new coronavirus cases slightly above average

Mississippi had slightly more new COVID-19 coronavirus cases Saturday than the trailing 7-day average, the state reported.

On Saturday, the state reported 735 new coronavirus cases were confirmed in the last 24 hours. The state also reported 14 more deaths Saturday from the prior day.

Through Saturday’s statistics, 767 deaths have been reported in August from COVID-19, making August the deadliest month on record for Mississippi. The monthly death toll, however, is not exact due to delays in reporting that can cause deaths to be reported weeks after the person died.

In total, 82,029 cases have been found in the state since March. The state believes more than 62,000 of those cases have recovered.

A total of 2,427 people in Mississippi have died as a result of coronavirus, the state reported.

The 7-day, daily average of new cases dropped to 680 with Saturday’s update.

The 14-day, daily average dropped to 734  cases per day.
