JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT, WTOK) – State health officials reported the first coronavirus-related death in Lauderdale County Saturday morning.

Lauderdale County coroner Clayton Cobler tells Newscenter 11 the victim was an elderly man with underlying medical conditions.

Lauderdale County now has the the 6th highest number of cases in the state at 61.

Outbreaks have also been reported at three Lauderdale County long-term care facilities.

The number of presumed positive coronavirus cases in Mississippi is now at 1,455.

The Mississippi Department of Health confirmed 97 new cases and 6 new deaths on Saturday morning. So far, 35 people have died from COVID-19 in Mississippi.

The amount of people tested at MSDH Public Health Laboratory is 5,685 as of Friday evening.
