A 75-year-old Bayonne woman was the second resident to die from coronavirus complications on Thursday evening, with her diagnosis confirmed yesterday, while 60 other current positive cases still exist throughout the city, Mayor Jimmy Davis said.
“As expected, we’re continuing to see a rise in residents who test positive for the coronavirus and I am sad to announce the death of another resident,” Davis said in a Facebook video this afternoon.
“A 75-year-old woman passed away Thursday and her test results came in last night, indicating that she was positive. On behalf of all of Bayonne, I express our deepest sympathy to her grieving family.”
Davis also said that while the total of COVID-19 cases has risen to 60, most patients are not exhibiting severe symptoms and are “recovering well at home.”
Yesterday, officials announced that Bayonne City Hall would be closing temporarily as of Monday, with municipal business being conducted via phone or mail, as only HCV reported.
Minutes ago, the New Jersey Department of Health indicated that there are now 771 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Hudson County, with numbers expected to surge as testing centers are open in Bayonne, Jersey City, and Secaucus.
