COVID-19 Update for North Carolina for Friday, May 15, 2020

Coronavirus Briefing: Dr. Cohen and Director Sprayberry

Here are some numbers from the CDC, the NCDHHS, and the Johns Hopkins Dashboard. Macon Media prefers the Johns Hopkins Dashboard because the counts include those non-residents that are left out of the CDC and NCDHHS numbers.

The CDC website [LINK] reports 15,816 people in North Carolina are infected, 597 have died, and infections are widespread, the NCDHHS website [LINK] reports 17,129 confirmed cases, 492 hospitalized and 641 deaths in the state. The Johns Hopkins Dashboard [LINK] reports 17,277 people infected and 661 deaths (these include non-residents located in NC).
