The Camden County Department of Health reported today that six Haddonfield residents have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, COVID-19: four males in their 10s, a male in his 20s, and a male in his 30s.
This brings the total number of cases for Haddonfield to 181, with five fatalities.
Also today, the Haddonfield School District reported four new cases: A male in his 10s at the Middle School and three males in their 10s at the High School. (Note: Cases reported by the District typically fall within those reported by the County, though not necessarily on the same date.)
In Camden County, the total number of cases stands at 15,884, with 588 deaths. For New Jersey, 285,519 cases with 14,817 confirmed deaths and an additional 1,801 probable deaths. The number of new deaths reported today — 38 — is the highest daily number for the past four months.
Rates per 1,000 of population are: Haddonfield 15.61; Camden County 30.92; New Jersey 32.48.
The transmission rate in New Jersey — a key metric — now stands at 1.42 (up 0.02 from yesterday). This is the highest it has been for some months, and reflects the situation across the country. (A transmission rate of 1.0 means that, on average, each new case will produce one additional new case. When the transmission rate falls below 1.0, it’s a good sign. When it rises above 1.0, it’s cause for concern.)
