Lee County Government confirmed 18 new Coronavirus cases on Wednesday, bringing the total number of cases to 154, the Health Department announced in a press release. It was the largest number of cases announced in a single day since tracking began in March.
The recovered number remained at 20 on Wednesday, with the remaining 134 under observation. Information about patients is not released, but WRAL reported in multiple places Tuesday that the Lee was a county with a food processing plant that had experienced an outbreak. The network also reported Monday on conditions at the Pilgrim’s Pride chicken plant in Cumnock.
There have been no confirmed COVID-related deaths reported in Lee County.
Last week, the county’s Health Department began offering a small amount of additional information – age range and gender – about patients with positive tests
Because demographic data is reported on a 24 hour delay, Wednesday’s cases are not included in the count. But of the 136 cases reported through Tuesday, 58 percent were female and 42 percent were male.
There were 19 cases between the ages of 0 and 24, 60 between the ages of 25 and 44, 50 between the ages of 45 and 64, and seven who were 65 and older.

You will probably find that COVID is being contracted at our big box stores and also from our grocery stores. COVID is a social disease that readily spreads in public places where large numbers of the public gather. Has anyone noticed where you see the full parking lots? Six foot distancing is not enough when you have this many people confined to four walls.
