NCDHHS Reports Highest One-Day Increase of COVID-19 Positive Tests

May 23, 2020

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) is reporting the state’s highest one-day number of laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases with 1,107 cases reported. 
“This is a notable and concerning increase. As we head into a holiday weekend, please practice the three Ws – wear a face covering, wait six feet apart, and wash your hands frequently. When it comes to our health, we need to work together to protect our families, friends and neighbors,” said NCDHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen. 
In addition, ten percent of total tests were positive among labs that report both negative and positive tests into the state electronic reporting system.



Some outlets are linking this increase to the partial re-opening of the state. Keep in mind that these tests were done prior to the re-opening.

    Anyone who doubts the danger of SARS-COV2 and COVID-19 might consider the case of Nick Cordero, the Broadway star who has been in critical care for nearly two months, has suffered multiple strokes, now has holes in his lung tissue, and had his leg amputated. News reports indicate he also required a temporary pacemaker. He’s 41 years old. Life for him and his family, including a young son, has changed forever. This is not an isolated case. Please be careful.
