Seven dead, 300 quarantined after a COVID-19 positive man goes to work
Washington : There are reports of super spreading coronavirus in the UK, and amid them here is a report of 7 people losing their lives and more than 300 people quarantined in US but they are not related. In UK there is a new version of coronavirus spreading and in the US there is a super spreader man who was responsible for all that happened.
According to a news report by the Washington Post, Douglas County officials said last week that a person knowingly went to work while suffering symptoms and later tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Two recent outbreaks in the county, which were reported by the Oregonian on Tuesday, were traced back to that individual and the ensuing infections forced hundreds of county residents into self-quarantine.
“One of those outbreaks has resulted in seven deaths, and the other recent outbreak has placed over 300 people/families in quarantine,” Douglas County Public Health Officer Bob Dannenhoffer said in a statement last Thursday. “We can’t even imagine the tremendous remorse these people are feeling right now, and we sympathize with them,” he said.
Meanwhile, the officials did not reveal the name of the workplace or the name of individual responsible for this.
The county, which touches the Oregon coast and encompasses a large swath of the Umpqua National Forest, has reported 37 deaths and at least 1,315 cases since the start of the pandemic.
