HURON — The Tuesday numbers from the South Dakota Department of Health showed continued adjustment in the negative numbers after duplication issues, but none of those numbers ended up affecting Beadle County’s tally.
The county added no new positive, negative, nor recovered cases in Tuesday’s numbers.
The state added 48 new positive tests to bring the overall total of positive cases to 8,492. With 70 new recovered cases reported, the state’s active COVID-19 cases was reduced to 895 after rising for five straight days. The total is still nearly 100 cases higher than it was on July 22, when the total was 799.
The Heartland region saw numbers reduced enough with the duplication issues that the total percentage tested in the region dropped a full quarter percent. After Tuesday’s numbers, the totals are back up to 12.35% of residents in the seven-county region having received a test.
