Coronavirus death toll rises to by 10 187 as hospitalizations remain steady


The number of Coronavirus deaths rose to 187, up 10 from Monday.

The total number of people hospitalized remained at 284. The rate of deaths has not been unexpected as serious cases of the virus mainly strike people with underlying health conditions.

In the meantime, the number of people moved toward the 25,000 mark as the state and health care providers focus on a portion of Sussex County and challenged neighborhoods in the Wilmington-New Castle area.

The number of recoveries from COVID-19 rose by 200.

Individuals who have died from COVID-19 ranged in age from 26 to 103 years old. Of those who have died, 99 were females and 88 were males. A total of 83 individuals were from New Castle County, 32 were from Kent County, and 72 were from Sussex County.

The most recent deaths announced today ranged in age from 48 to 101. Three were female and two were male. One was a New Castle County resident, two were Kent County residents, and two were Sussex County residents. Four individuals had underlying health conditions.
