It is with great sadness the City of Beaumont Public Health Department (BPHD) has to report three (3) additional COVID-19 related deaths of Beaumont residents. The 3 residents are, one male patient between the ages of 80 and 90, a female patient between the ages of 80 and 90 and another male patient between the ages of 50 and 60. All three (3) patients had underlying medical conditions. This brings the total number of COVID-19 deaths in Beaumont to 12.
Again, this is an important reminder that COVID-19 is a very serious disease. While 80% of individuals who contract COVID-19 will have mild to moderate symptoms and fully recover, they may spread the disease to people who are at high risk. Older adults and people with underlying health conditions or weakened immune systems are at a much higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19. We strongly advise at-risk individuals to minimize contact with others who are ill and practice social distancing.
