North Carolina sees 20% increase in COVID-19 cases in one week

RALEIGH, NC – The State of North Carolina has seen an increase in COVID-19 cases in the past week since Thanksgiving.  The number of COVID-19 positive cases increased by 20% in the 7 day period after Thanksgving according to state health officials

“In less than a week, we went from exceeding 5,000 new cases reported in one day to exceeding 6,000. This is very worrisome. We are seeing our highest rates of tests that come back positive despite the fact we are doing a lot of testing,” said North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D.  “This indicates we have even more viral spread across our state right now. We have record numbers of hospitalizations and people in the ICU. I am asking each North Carolinian to take personal responsibility for their actions and slowing the spread of this virus. Always wear a mask when with people you don’t live with, keep your distance from other people and wash your hands often. We are looking at what further actions we can take as a state to protect North Carolinians and save lives.”
