Craven County confirmed coronavirus cases increased by two from Sunday to Monday, bringing the total case count to 44 with four deaths. Meanwhile, 11 new cases and one new death were reported among Craven and surrounding counties during that same period.

The Craven County Health Department has not yet issued its update for Monday. Data from that source will be included in another New Bern Post report once the county figures are available.

The two new cases were in the 28562 ZIP Code area of New Bern.

  1. Thank you so much for your great coverage of the Corona Virus. Being informed has helped us to keep calm. I am so glad that I get the New Bern Post. Everyone keeps asking me where I get my information from and they are rushing to sign up. Thank you again and keep up the good work.

      Thanks, Ms. Welch. I was in the newspaper business for more than 30 years. I gave up on it but didn’t give up on covering the news. I am proud that intelligent people follow the Post. During times like these, clear, accurate news reporting is even more important.

      1. I think that you left the Sun Journal pretty soon after we moved in. When I tell everyone that you are the one that writes this, they all seem to know you. Again, thank you so much. There is so much misinformation everywhere, such as “New Bern is safe. We will never get it here.” that it is very reassuring to have a source for the facts that I can count on.
