There have been four 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 12 new cases announced Wednesday are not included below.
But of the 474 cases reported through Tuesday, 52 percent were female and 48 percent were male. There were 84 cases in people under 24, 193 between 25 and 44, 161 between 45 and 64, and 36 who were 65 or older.
