State reports nearly 50 new coronavirus cases

40 for residents.

After two days with relatively low numbers of new cases, the state again reported more than 40 new COVID-19 cases.

Among the cases reported Wednesday, 40 involved Alaskans and seven involved nonresidents, according to Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.

The new cases bring the total number of Alaskan cases to 1,226, nonresident cases to 248 and the number of active cases to 646, according to state data. So far, 563 state residents have recovered.

Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, breathing trouble, sore throat, muscle pain and loss of taste or smell. Most people develop only mild symptoms. But

some people, usually those with other medical complications, develop more severe symptoms, including pneumonia that can be fatal.

No Juneauites were among the state’s report, and the city’s data now only include one active resident case.

The most new cases involving Alaskans— 19 — were reported for Anchorage, according to state data.

A nonresident case was reported for City and Borough of Juneau, according to state data. Data do not specify why the person was in Juneau.

This is the city’s sixth nonresident case, according to CBJ’s COVID-19 dashboard. So far, five nonresidents have recovered and one case is active.
