Mississippi Stay at Home Order Starts at 5:00 PM Today

THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — Governor Tate Reeves’ statewide stay-at-home order takes effect today at 5 PM. Mississippi has 1177 coronavirus cases with 26 deaths and Memphis television station WMC says data from Johns Hopkins University places Cleveland and Indianola in the top ten per capita for positive COVID-19 tests, ranking higher than the Chicago metro area while Tunica, Coahoma and Bolivar Counties are coronavirus hot spots with 64 cases in the three counties. In Tennessee, there have been 24 deaths and 2683 confirmed COVID-19 cases. Shelby County has 638 cases and five deaths but the Nashville area has surpassed Shelby County with 785 cases. Arkansas has confirmed 624 cases with ten deaths; Alabama has over 1100 cases of coronavirus but Governor Kay Ivey has NOT issued a shelter-in-place order as Mississippi and other states have. For most people coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms like fever and cough which clear up in two to three weeks but milder cases of pneumonia sometimes require hospitalization. The risk of death is greater for older adults and people with underlying health problems.
