New Corona Deaths Down Thursday, None in Delta


JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — The number of coronavirus death cases continues to climb statewide in Mississippi. As of April 9, Mississippi reported with 482 hospitalizations with 82 deaths, a slower one day climb than the day before. Deaths in the Delta held steady at 4 in Leflore County, 3 in Bolivar, 2 in Washington County, and 1 in Coahoma, Tunica, and Yazoo counties. For most people coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms like fever and cough which clear up in two to three weeks but milder cases of pneumonia sometimes require hospitalization. The risk of death is greater for older adults, and men, African-Americans, and people with underlying health problems.
