The Camden County Department of Health reported today that three Haddonfield residents have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, COVID-19: a male in his 50s (on September 26), a male in his 20s (September 27), and a female in her 80s (today). This brings the total number of confirmed cases locally to 115, with four fatalities.
(Recap: This time last week, the Health Department announced a downward adjustment to the number of Haddonfield fatalities, from 7 to 4. The change was part of a county-wide adjustment, made as 27 out-of-jurisdiction and “possible” cases were removed from the tally.)
In Camden County, the total number of cases stands at 10,636, with 552 deaths. For New Jersey, 204,107 cases with 14,316 confirmed deaths and an additional 1,791 probable deaths.
The transmission rate — a key metric — now stands at 1.12. (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.)
