The Camden County Department of Health reported today that two Haddonfield residents have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, COVID-19: a male in his 40s, and one in his 50s. This brings the total number of confirmed cases locally to 141, with five fatalities.
In Camden County, the total number of cases stands at 12,520 (up 95 since yesterday), with 580 deaths (up 5). For New Jersey, 236,523 cases (up 1,976) with 14,539 confirmed deaths (up 7) and an additional 1,793 probable deaths.
Rates per 1,000 of population are: Haddonfield 12.16; Camden County 24.37; New Jersey 26.63.
The transmission rate — a key metric — now stands at 1.26. (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.)
