More people got coronavirus in Mobile County in June than any previous month, but fewer people required hospitalization, and far fewer people died.
1,472 people tested positive for COVID-19 in June, an increase of 301 cases from May, but hospitalizations dropped by 39, and deaths by 43 from the previous months.
Those trends are likely a direct result of more young people and fewer elderly people testing postive. 58 children age four and under tested positive in June – representing 3.7-percent of total cases. A quarter of all cases were people age five to 24. People 65 and older represented just 12.7-percent of cases.
