Sixteen new COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Lee County since Monday, the Health Department announced, bringing the total number of patients who have tested positive to 386.
Six of the new cases were identified on Tuesday, and 10 were identified Wednesday. There have been three COVID-related deaths in Lee County.
The number of patients who have recovered and resumed normal activity also saw a significant jump, going from 196 to 235, the biggest jump in recoveries since tracking began in March.
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 16 new cases announced Wednesday are not included below.
But of the 376 cases reported through Tuesday, 53 percent were female and 47 percent were male. There were 63 cases in people under 24, 150 between 25 and 44, 140 between 45 and 64, and 23 who were 65 or older.
