Nez Perce County records 11 COVID-19 deaths

As of Friday, 3 positive and 8 probable deaths have been attributed to COVID-19, according to Public Health Idaho-North Central District figures.

All have been in older adults with age-related medical issues. Probable death cases include people whose death certificate lists COVID-19 or SARS-CoV-2 as contributing to death without laboratory confirmation.

COVID-19 is a new disease and there is limited information regarding risk factors for severe disease. Based on currently available information and clinical expertise, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness and death from COVID-19.
