Eight more Camden County residents have died from complications related to novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and 121 others have contracted the virus, the Camden County government announced Monday.
That brings the local toll to 18 lives lost and 683 cases of COVID-19 in Camden County.
The recently deceased were: a Camden City man in his 60s, two Gloucester Township men in their 30s and 50s, two Lindenwold women in their 60s and 70s, a Pennsauken man in his 60s, and two Winslow Township men in their 60s.
“As some patients now stretch into their second or third week battling this virus, we expect that more cherished lives will be lost to this unseen adversary,” said Camden County Freeholder-Director Louis Cappelli in a statement.
“Similarly, we continue to see an increase in new cases as the availability of testing becomes more widespread,” Cappelli said. “For many of us, the coming weeks will represent the toughest challenge we have faced in our lifetimes, as we reach the expected peak of the virus’ activity in the United States.
“If we continue to stay home, maintain appropriate social distance, and follow the advice of medical professionals and experts, we will defeat this virus and we will overcome this unprecedented obstacle together,” he said.
