Camden County Reports 48 New COVID-19 Cases; 350 Total Cases as of Thursday

(Gloucester Township, NJ) – The Department of Health is announcing 48 additional positive cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) identified in Camden County on Thursday, April 2nd. Trace investigations are being facilitated with the patients and remain ongoing.

This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 350 in Camden County and eight total fatalities as of Thursday.

“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 Louis Cappelli, Jr. “This is a war that we will win not over a period of weeks, but over a period of months. 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. 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.”

Today, the hospitalization rate among Camden County cases fell to under 10 percent, and 73 residents were tested at the county’s mobile testing site at Cooper Poynt Waterfront Park in Camden City.
