COVID-19 on the rise in area

Submitted by Dr. Jalal Joudeh

COVID-19 Update: Total number of tests done at our local lab since March until Tuesday, July 14, are 549. Total positive results are 114 with 62 female, 33 male and 19 reswabs. There are 19 reported positive cases from outside labs.

As everyone by now knows that the number of people infected with COVID 19 is on the rise in our area, we must continue to exercise the social and physical distancing, wear masks in public places and avoid gathering. We all must do it together. It cannot be done individually.

Also, I urge everyone who had the COVID 19 illness and thankfully recovered to donate their plasma if he or she is capable of doing so. That may save someone else’s life. Please call your local blood bank
