As of Wednesday morning, June 17, the Pike County General Health District is reporting two new active cases of COVID-19 in the county.
This includes one confirmed case and one probable case of the disease and brings Pike's total number of cases to 11 (7 confirmed cases and 4 probable cases). The cases include six females and five males ranging in age from 25 to 72 years old.
“Per the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) definition, a probable case is someone who had direct contact with a confirmed case and became symptomatic, but the health care provider decided not to test. For example, if a person tests positive and then another member in that same household becomes symptomatic, they are counted as a probable,” the health district explained recently.
The Pike health district stated that contract tracing has been completed for the new cases.
