CAMDEN, NJ — In the Camden County health department's latest coronavirus update, released Friday, it has confirmed 44 more cases of the respiratory illness. 

On Thursday, the county said a Voorhees man in his 60s became the county's 551st death.

"We need to be clear that young people are not immune to this virus, and they are contracting and carrying COVID-19 in increasing numbers,” said Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli while highlighting that over 60% of the new cases are people younger than 30. “We continue to find that the spread of coronavirus at this time is largely linked to preventable, behavioral choices, such as attending parties or large gatherings, and not wearing a mask or social distancing.
