Nearly 900 more new cases of the coronavirus have been confirmed in Alabama, according to the Alabama Department of Public Health.

Additionally, there are 478 probable cases in the state.

According to ADPH's website, probable cases are the total number of patients who have had close contact with a confirmed case, have symptoms meeting clinical criteria of COVID-19 and have no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID-19.

In the last 14 days, there have been 9,477 new confirmed cases with 101,692 tests given, according to what ADPH is currently reporting.

Tallapoosa County added five new cases in the last day, now at 534 confirmed cases. Tallapoosa County has 69 COVID-19 deaths to still rank No. 4 for most deaths in the state. There are seven probable cases in Tallapoosa County and one probable death.

ADPH's 14-day count-specific data shows Tallapoosa County has seen 72 new cases and 1,126 tests given.

Coosa County added one new cases, now at 55 confirmed cases with one confirmed death. There are no probable deaths or cases. There have been nine new cases and 124 tested in the last two weeks, according to ADPH.

Elmore County's added 27 new cases to be at 771 confirmed cases and still at 13 COVID-19 deaths. There are now 15 probable cases in Elmore County and zero probable deaths. ADPH's 14-day county-specific data shows Elmore County has seen 250 new cases and 1,928 tests.

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, there have been 384,026 tests performed throughout the state, according to ADPH. A total of 477 have been tested in Coosa County, 6,216 in Elmore County and 4,456 in Tallapoosa County.

Statewide, there have been 898 deaths due to COVID-19 and 21 probable deaths, according to ADPH.

Confirmed and probable deaths represent patients who have a death certificate that lists COVID-19 disease or SARS-CoV-2 as a cause of death or a significant condition contributing to death. Confirmed deaths have a laboratory confirmation of the disease while probable deaths have no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID-19.

According to ADPH's presumed recoveries category, which will be updated weekly and was updated Wednesday morning, 18,866 people statewide have presumably recovered from COVID-19.

"Cases are presumed recovered if it has been 14 days or more since the case tested positive if they were not hospitalized, or if it has been 32 days or more since the case tested positive if they were hospitalized or if hospitalization was unknown," ADPH wrote in a Facebook post. "All deaths excluded."

There have been 2,697 hospitalizations across the state since March 13, according to ADPH.

According to the CDC, people with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported, from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Symptoms include:

  • Fever or chills
