By FLOYD INGRAM / THE PRESS REGISTER,

 

Coahoma County posted its first reported case of coronavirus in a nursing home Monday, while the state saw the traditional drop in cases reported over the weekend.

Mississippi reported only one death from the disease on Monday.

Coahoma County went 118 days into the pandemic without a case of the virus reported in a Long Term Care (LTC) facility. The state’s case count for LTC’s also includes staff who test positive with the disease and not just residents of those facilities.

There have been no deaths reported in LTC’s in Coahoma County.

FLOYD INGRAM: Are you ready for Good News?

By FLOYD INGRAM / THE PRESS REGISTER,
