CAMDEN, NJ — Two men, one from the city of Camden in his 80s and another from Winslow Township in his 60s, died of COVID-19, Camden County health officials announced Wednesday. 

It brings the death toll in Camden County to at least eight.

In addition, there are now 59 additional positive cases — a total of 301 and the biggest single-day jump so far.

“In the fight against the novel coronavirus, the days become longer and tougher as we continue to see fatalities and new positive cases. It saddens me to report the county had two more fatalities today," said Camden Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli this afternoon. "The devastating impact this insidious virus is having on our community is unprecedented and historic."

With more testing sites springing up, including one that opened in the city of Camden on Wednesday morning, officials expect numbers to continue to rise.  

The same could be said for the state, where case numbers saw their biggest increase Wednesday as well. 

“We need everyone to continue to take this threat seriously, even as these long weeks at home begin to take their toll. If we all do our part, we will emerge from this stronger and more united than ever," said Cappelli.
