The Springfield-Greene County Health Department, which reports weekly death counts from COVID-19, had some encouraging data to share Wednesday:  last week’s death count from the disease was zero. That reporting period ran from April 14 to April 20.

This is only the second time in 39 weeks that Greene County has had no new COVID-19 deaths to report. The first time was in late March.

In a press release, the health department said while there were no new deaths, the virus is still present. 119 cases of COVID-19 were reported in Greene County in the last week, with 368 cases of COVID-19 reported so far in April.
