San Benito County had two more confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, bringing the total locally to nine.
That number is expected to rise in the coming days and weeks as more residents are tested for the disease caused by the coronavirus. So far, as of Wednesday, the county listed there had been 90 tests done. But the county’s public information officer, David Westrick, said that number will fluctuate because there are multiple sources and areas where testing is happening.
Of the nine cases, six are active. There are two people who recovered and one death in San Benito County, according to the data.
“What you’re going to see is fluctuation with confirmed and active cases,” Westrick said.
He said his hope is to eventually see the number of recovered cases surpass the active ones – which could be a turning point from a data perspective.
