CAMDEN, NJ — Camden County's COVID-19 hospitalization rate fell to under 10 percent on Thursday, as officials announced 48 new positive cases.

Of the 48, which now makes at least 350 in the county, ten were residents from the city of Camden. 

“We are continuing to combat this virus through mitigation efforts and testing, nevertheless, we are still receiving a steady flow of new cases from our partners at the state and private labs,” said Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli. “This is a war that we will win not over a period of weeks, but over a period of months."

There have been at least eight deaths in the county as of Thursday.

State health officials announced earlier in the day 182 new deaths (537 total) and 3,489 new positive results (25,590 total).

The county said 73 residents have been tested at the county's mobile testing site at Cooper's Poynt Waterfront Park in Camden City, which was opened Wednesday morning.

"We all must remain vigilant, policing ourselves to stay at home, to avoid unnecessary trips, and to exercise social distancing to the greatest possible extent. We have seen this strategy work in other parts of the world that have fought back this virus, and if we do our part it will work here too," Cappelli said. "While many of us stay at home, I’d like to again thank our first responders, healthcare professionals, and everyone who is on the front lines fighting this virus and keeping the rest of us safe.”
