BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — State health officials said Tuesday 22 more people have tested positive for the new coronavirus in North Dakota, but no additional deaths have been reported.
More than half of the new positive results reported are in Cass County, which includes the city of Fargo and remains the epicenter of the state’s coronavirus outbreak.
The state Department of Health said the new numbers increase the number of positive cases to 2,901 with 114 individuals recovered since Monday bringing the total number of recovered people to 2,450.
There have been 72 deaths associated with COVID-19 in North Dakota.
For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.
