North Carolina reported 2,684 new cases of the novel coronavirus on Friday. With more than 2,500 new cases reported Thursday, the state is reaching a peak unseen since the pandemic began.
Nearly 4,000 North Carolinians have died of COVID-19 in the past seven months, according to health officials.
At least 206,471 have supposedly recovered from the virus as of Friday, October 16, 2020.
“One thing is clear: North Carolinians must be even more vigilant in our effort to prevent the spread of this virus,” Gov. Roy Cooper said. “Complacency will cost lives and hurt our economy.”
Although the Governor has yet to tie the new uptick in cases to his move into Phase 3, it sure does look like that move may have caused this spike.
