The state saw more than 300 positive COVID-19 cases added to its count in the last 24 hours.

As of noon Sunday, there have been 7,695 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus across the state, according to the Alabama Department of Public Health. This is an increase of 313 cases across the state which is one of the highest one-day increases the state has seen since mid-April. 

Tallapoosa County remains one of the top counties in the state for positive COVID-19 cases. Mobile County leads the state with 1,192 cases. As of today, Tallapoosa County remains eighth in the state with 291 confirmed cases. It is second in the state per capita.

Tallapoosa County added four cases in the last 24 hours to be at 291 cases. Coosa County added one, now at 30 confirmed cases. Elmore County saw the highest increase locally with an increase of six, now at 94 confirmed cases.

Statewide, the ADPH is reporting 91,933 total tested. ADPH's website states the total tested number for the state also includes test results from persons who were tested in Alabama but do not reside in Alabama. This is the only data provided on the dashboard that includes persons from other states. There are zero confirmed cases or deaths that are out of state.

In Tallapoosa County, there have been 1,470 tests counted by ADPH, 150 in Coosa County and 1,354 in Elmore County.

There are still 18 coronavirus deaths in Tallapoosa County, two deaths in Elmore County and one death in Coosa County. Statewide, there have been 289 COVID-19 deaths.

ADPH reports only confirmed COVID-19 deaths. The criteria for death counts now include people who died with a positive COVID-19 laboratory test as well as individuals whose death certificates list, as the cause of death, COVID-19 or an equivalent.

ADPH said as of Friday morning more than 2,300 confirmed cases across the state have recovered or are no longer ill, according to spokesperson Dr. Karen Landers. Read the full story here. ADPH is hoping to have a recoveries category added to its dashboard at some point in the future.

ADPH still shows Tallapoosa County as the second highest confirmed case rate per capita of all 67 counties with a rate of 720.9 per 100,000 persons, following behind only Chambers County, which has 295 confirmed cases, at 887.1. Lowndes County, which has a population 9,726 and 70 confirmed cases, has nearly caught up to Tallapoosa County with a rate of 719.7 per 100,000 persons. This per capita rate allows a county-by-county comparison as if each population was the same.

Coosa County's confirmed case rate per 100,000 is 281.3 while Elmore County's is 115.8 per 100,000 persons.

There have been 1,033 hospitalizations across the state since March 13, according to ADPH.

Since March 13, there have been 403 patients in intensive care units and 242 on a ventilator. In the medical field, 1,103 healthcare workers in hospitals and doctor's offices have tested positive. When it comes to long-term care facilities, 492 employees and 764 residents have tested positive for COVID-19. A total of 2,359 of the state's 7,695 confirmed cases have been healthcare workers or long-term care employees or residents.

As of Friday, 18 veterans at Bill Nichols State Veterans Home in Alexander City have died due to COVID-19. A total of 85 veterans have been diagnosed with the illness since April 8 — many asymptomatic and this does not include staff. An investigation into the outbreak has been completed. Read the full story here.
