Much of the country is still having more and more people struck by coronavirus. Through Sunday night, all counties in Washington have reported confirmed cases of COVID-19, except two (Garfield and Pacific), and there were 7,984 confirmed cases and 338 total deaths.
Through Sunday night there were a total of 105 confirmed completed tests in Pacific County. On Friday, 13 people were tested in South Bend at the mobile unit. Also, Pacific County did receive 100 COVID-19 test kits from the state.
Some health experts have reported that 25 percent of the population is walking around with the virus and don't know it. Many rural communities have not been overwhelmed by the outbreak, yet.
