CAMDEN, NJ — Camden County officials noted that Friday marked the fifth straight day of 30 new coronavirus cases.

"[It's] the most we've seen in more than a month," Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli said, a day after he reported five new deaths linked to the respiratory illness.

Similarly, Gov. Phil Murphy updated the state's totals, with 519 new cases - marking the fourth consecutive day with over 400 cases and second with over 500 (peaking this week at 617 on Thursday).

“Thanks to the hard work of thousands of residents, it can feel like this pandemic is subsiding, but weeks like this make clear that this deadly virus is still extremely active in our community," said Cappelli. "If we let our guards down, it will spread rapidly, which is why we have to continue to wear masks, social distance, and do everything in our power to protect our circles.” 

The county reported 36 new cases Friday (10,343 total). The death toll remains at 574.

Throughout the Garden State, there have been 198,848 cases since March 4.

“Sadly, we must report five additional COVID-19 deaths, bringing our statewide total of confirmed deaths to 14,270,” Murphy said. “All the deaths we are reporting today are from the past five days. The number of probable deaths remains 1,791.”

Among those hospitalized, 73 are in intensive care and 36 are on ventilators.

“If a contact tracer reaches out to you, take the call. For the sake of your health, your family’s health, and for our ability to defeat #COVID19,” urged Murphy, who said the state has 1,864 tracers on-the-ground, which represents 21 contact tracers for every 100,000 New Jersey residents.
