SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) –
The Springfield-Green County Health Department on Wednesday reported three additional deaths related to COVID-19.
Health leaders say the victims include a man in his 40s who is involved with long-term care, a woman in her 70s is associated with long-term care, and a male in her 90s. All of the victims were suffering from underlying health conditions. Older adults and people of any age with underlying health conditions may have more severe disease than COVID-19.
“This virus unfortunately shows us that no one is immune, especially in those risks. People with underlying health conditions who had many healthy years ago are dying, ”said director of health Claire Goddard. “We practice trusting each other, looking at our distance, wearing masks, washing our hands and staying indoors when we are ill.”
County health leaders report 19 COVID-19s in September. A total of 49 Greene County residents have died of the virus so far.
