Two new COVID deaths in Albany County are people in their 30s, 40s
COVID isn’t just affecting older residents seriously in Albany County.
In an email update on Wednesday, Albany County Executive Dan McCoy said a woman in her 40s and man in his 30s have died from the virus. That brings the county’s death toll to 395 since the start of the pandemic.
Meanwhile, 67 new positive cases were identified in the county since Tuesday.
There are now 479 active cases in the county, down from 494 Tuesday, and 30 people hospitalized, three more than Tuesday.
McCoy continues to urge people to get vaccinated. He says 69.4% of residents have at least one dose, and 63.8% are fully vaccinated.
What’s clear based on this data is that it’s not just older residents at risk.— Dan McCoy-CountyExec (@MCCoyCountyExec) September 1, 2021
I continue to remind everyone that the threat of this virus hasn’t gone away & the best way to prevent serious illness, hospitalization or worse is to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
