JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) is reporting 3,608 new cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Mississippi, along with six additional deaths. The cases were reported between July 23 and July 25.

This brings the state’s total number of cases to 336,788 with 7,508 deaths.

According to MSDH, younger Mississippians are being hospitalized due to the Delta variant.

“We are in a strikingly different situation from a year ago, when severe COVID-19 occurred mostly in those over 50. Now 43% of those hospitalized for COVID-19 right now are under 50,” the department tweeted.

According to MSDH, COVID-19 testing has jumped statewide, and the positivity rate in Mississippi is the same as it was during the worst of COVID-19 in January.
