The Alabama Department of Public Health confirms there are now 830 cases of coronavirus and four virus-related deaths in Alabama. There are new reports of additional coronavirus related deaths in the state, but the ADPH has yet to confirm.

Jefferson County has the most cases per county with 246, while Madison and Shelby counties have 79 cases. These numbers were updated at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, March 30.

Despite ADPH’s startewide death count of 6, Lee County Coroner Bill Harris says six people alone have died from COVID-19 at East Alabama Medical Center. Only one of the deaths has been counted by ADPH as state health officials continue the process of official state determination, EAMC said.

A sixth case of coronavirus has been confirmed in Houston County according to the Alabama Department of Public Health although the Southeast Health web site currently lists 8 confirmed cases at that hospital alone. At least some of those cases at the regional medical center are probably patients from out of state.

State officials opened a toll-free number for people who develop symptoms and need to be tested. For more on how to get tested, you can call 1-888-264-2256. This is not a medical helpline.
