Mississippi’s daily new coronavirus case averages continue to decline

Mississippi’s trailing averages of new COVID-19 coronavirus cases continued to decline with the latest statistics from the state and for the first time since mid-June, no new deaths were reported in the last 24 hours from the virus.

On Tuesday, the state reported 249 new coronavirus cases were confirmed in the last 24 hours. That number may be artificially low due to a number of private labs being closed for the Labor Day holiday on Monday.

The state also reported no new deaths Tuesday. It was the first time since June 11 that no deaths were reported.

In total, 87,379 cases have been found in the state since March. The state believes approximately 68,000 of those cases have recovered.

A total of 2,585 people in Mississippi have died as a result of coronavirus, the state reported.

The 7-day, daily average of new cases dropped to 542 with Tuesday’s update. That number was the lowest 7-day, daily average since late June.

The 14-day, daily average dropped to 584  cases per day.

Totals of all reported COVID-19 cases for 2020, including those in long-term care (LTC) facilities.

The numbers in this table are provisional. County case numbers and deaths may change as investigation finds new or additional information. The data provided below is the most current available.
