Lee County Government announced Monday that it had confirmed 18 new Coronavirus cases on Saturday and Monday, bringing the total number of residents who have tested positive to 323.
Twelve of the new cases were confirmed on Saturday, and the remaining six on Monday. Sunday was the first day since April 10 with no new cases announced.
The number who have recovered also jumped by 7 to 155 on Monday. There have been three COVID-related deaths in Lee County.
The county only discloses demographic information – age range and gender – of those who have tested positive. The information is reported on a 24 hour delay, so the six new cases announced Monday are not included below.
But of the 317 cases reported through Sunday, 54 percent were female and 46 percent were male. There were 48 cases in people under 24, 128 between 25 and 44, 121 between 45 and 64, and 20 who were 65 or older.
Additionally, as cases have slowed, the county Health Department has announced that it will reduce the frequency with which new cases are announced – updates will now be provided on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
