MCDPH Reports 22 More Confirmed Cases Wednesday

MADERA — Madera County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) officials reported 22 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, raising the total number of cases countywide to 541.

As of 4 p.m., MCDPH was reporting a total of 216 active cases — and 320 recoveries. Fourteen of the active cases are serious enough to require hospitalization.

Health officials also are currently “monitoring” 435 other people for COVID-19 — and have now tested nearly 9,000 county residents since the pandemic began.

Mariposa County reported one new coronavirus cases on Wednesday. The county’s total of 27 cases so far includes one fatality — and 18 recoveries — with county officials reportedly awaiting more than 100 pending test results after a staff member at Mariposa County’s only hospital, John C. Fremont Healthcare District, tested positive last week for COVID-19.

Madera County registered its fifth COVID-19 related death last week, a man in his 80s who died Sunday night (June 21) at Madera Community Hospital. The victim, who had underlying health conditions, originally tested positive for COVID-19 on June 8.

According to MCDPH’s data dashboard, a total of 35 cases have now been confirmed in Reporting Area D — which includes the eastern Madera County foothills and mountain communities. One new case was confirmed in Reporting Area D over the past 24 hours, according to health department officials.
