Rockland/Westchester Journal News

AG电子游戏攻略Another coronavirus-related fatality has been reported in Rockland County, according to the Rockland Medical Examiner’s Office. But the death occurred in April, county officials said.

AG电子游戏攻略The coronavirus-related fatality was discovered during a review of past death certificates, county spokesman John Lyon said. On June 1, the county had added 11 past fatalities from the virus after a similar death certificate review. 

The county’s total fatalities since the coronavirus hit New York now stands at 670.

On Thursday, the county reported its first COVID-19-related fatality since June 30. Before the June 30 report, the county had gone about a week without a death blamed on the coronavirus.

AG电子游戏攻略Fatalities are considered a “lagging indicator” of the virus' spread because infections can have occurred several weeks prior. Information about the current status of the virus in a region can be gleaned from current hospitalizations and recent positive test results.

According to New York state, Rockland had eight more tests come back positive for the virus between Thursday and Friday, out of 927 tests. 

AG电子游戏攻略In total, 13,691 of the 86,268 COVID-19 tests given in Rockland have returned positive results for the virus, meaning 15.9% of all tests have yielded a positive result.
