It is with great sadness, the City of Beaumont Public Health Department, has to report a 3rd COVID-19 related death of a Beaumont resident. The female patient was between the ages of 60-70 and had underlying medical issues. She had no known travel history. 

 

The Beaumont Public Health Department (BPHD) also received confirmations of 19 additional positive cases of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), bringing the total number of cases to 52 (48 in Beaumont and 2 in China, 1 in Fannett and 1 in Nome). These 19 confirmations include results for Saturday, April 4th, Sunday, April 5th and today, Monday, April 6th

 

The age ranges for the confirmations are: 

 

2 between the ages of 10-20 

3 between the ages of 20-30 

2 between the ages of 30-40 

1 between the ages of 40-50 

6 between the ages of 50-60 

1 between the ages of 60-70 

3 between the ages of 70-80 

1 between the ages of 90-100  

 

Again, this is an important reminder that COVID-19 is a very serious disease. While 80% of the 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, people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions, or people with weakened immune systems, are at a much higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19. We strongly advise the citizens of Beaumont to minimize contact with others as much as possible and practice social distancing as outlined in the Stay Home-Work Safe Order issued by Mayor Becky Ames.
