Cattaraugus County Department of Health Confirms 29th Case of COVID-19


The number of Nevadans to test positive for COVID-19 reached 3,524 cases on Friday, according to the latest data from the Nevada Health Alliance.

As a public service, St Margaret's Health & Shaw Media have partnered to provide open access to information related to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) emergency.

Of those 42, 25 cases are believed to have been contracted through travel, eight from local transmission and eight from contact with someone with a positive case. Dr. Nirmal Joshi, chief medical officer for Mount Nittany Health, recently told the CDT that the hospital can now provide ventilator care for up to 40 patients. Bureau, Putnam and Marshall County Health Department's total number of cases remained at seven in Bureau County, two in Marshall County and none in Putnam County as of Friday afternoon.

The highest cohort of cases is people in their 40s (57 cases), even though only one person in their 40s has died from the virus. Of those cases, 22 are men and 20 are women, the health department said. There were 236 reported in mandatory quarantine by the Health Department, down from 253 on Thursday.

The report also notes that data is subject to change, since the number of negative tests may be higher than reported as laboratories are not required to report those results. Perkins is the only county where testing wasn't done.

The two other new reported cases include a patient in their 20s and one in their 50s.

He said, "We continue to ask our residents to hunker down, and avoid any non-essential travel, especially to areas where there is community wide spread of COVID-19 otherwise, you place your family and other Cattaraugus County residents at risk".
