The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) keeps track of the COVID-19 cases in South Carolina. However, the numbers are not accurate or up to date because of the lack of tests in South Carolina. SCDHEC has admitted that supply shortages have severely limited its testing capabilities. SCDHEC officials noted they had a backlog of more than 1,000 tests to go through over the weekend. Maybe Lindsey Graham can ask his buddy Trump for a little help?
According to the latest numbers, there are now 1,693 total COVID-19 cases in 43 counties with at least 30 deaths. SCDHEC has not provided any further information on the unfortunate individuals who passed away.
South Carolina ranked No. 48 out of fifty states when it came to the true number of citizens getting tested, according to a new “viral database” – CovidTracking.com. According to the data, for every 100,000 South Carolina residents only 75 have been tested for the virus.
