Four coronavirus cases reported in Tyrrell

As of Monday morning, April 20, there were four laboratory-confirmed cases of coronavirus in Tyrrell County, state health officials reported.

Tyrrell’s first case was reported April 13, but the number jumped quickly during the week.

Tyrrell became the 93rd county in North Carolina to report cases of COVID-19 among its inhabitants.

Vickey Manning at Martin-Tyrrell-Washington District Health Department, said Monday morning that health officials cannot specify the age, race, gender, address or other data on coronavirus victims in the district. “Because we are so small [sparsely populated], we are not able to release anything that might even come close to identifying” the individuals involved.

The Department of Health and Human Services on Monday reported 6,764 laboratory-confirmed cases in North Carolina. Of that total, 179 have died and 373 are currently hospitalized. Tests have been completed on 79,484 of the more than 10 million Tar Heel state residents.
