Beaufort County has reported 3,566 coronavirus cases and an estimated 21,905 undiagnosed cases.

A positive case refers to a case that has been tested and diagnosed for the coronavirus. Due to the lack of testing methods, state health officials said that in each confirmed case, up to 9 people may be infected but not tested.

The total number of cases includes anyone who has tested positive since the beginning of the pandemic. The data also includes people who have recovered or died.

As officials correct data discrepancies, the total amount of DHEC may increase and decrease slightly every day.

DHEC did not provide the overall number of cases between counties and the total number of recovered cases. It also does not release any identifying information or details about the underlying diseases that people who have died from the coronavirus may have.

DHEC calculates the number of deaths based on the patient’s residence rather than the place of death.

Coronavirus cases in Parris Island, Marine Corps Recruit Depot, were reported in the 29902 postcode.
