Coronavirus in Missouri: Where are the positive COVID-19 cases?

  

At least 75,944 Missourians have tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus) and 1,426 people have died. 

Gov. Mike Parson declared a state of emergency and implemented a statewide stay at home order which has now been lifted. A national emergency was declared as well as the pandemic spread. 

The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” while the disease is called “coronavirus disease 2019,” or “COVID-19.” It can cause severe respiratory illnesses with symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned.

The virus can spread among people through close personal contact or by touching a surface with the virus, according to the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS). 

A total of 75,944 cases have been confirmed by state officials with more than 919,000 people having been tested. The first fatality was reported on March 18.
