DHEC reports three new coronavirus-related deaths, bringing the state’s total number to 34 deaths.

The three were all elderly patients who had underlying health conditions. Two were residents of Richland County and one of Greenville County.

“If we all take seriously our individual obligations to help prevent spread of the disease, we have the potential to save lives,” DHEC medical consultant Dr. Michael Kacka said. “Our sympathies are with the friends and family of these three individuals, and with all the loved ones who’ve lost someone to this disease.”
