Covid Deaths Continue to Climb at Cone Hospitals
Health officials at several area hospitals are hopeful that the current surge in COVID-19 cases will soon plateau. Officials at Cone Health, which operates several hospitals in the Triad – including Alamance Regional – saw the number of Covid-related deaths more than double in August. Throughout August, Cone reported 39 COVID-related deaths among its patients. That’s up from 18 in July and 4 in June.
