THE PORT ARTHUR HEALTH DEPARTMENT REPORTS A COVID RELATED DEATH FOR PORT ARTHUR

October 16, 2020

It is with great sadness that the City of Port Arthur Health Department is reporting a COVID-19 related death. The individual was an Asian Male between the age range of 65-70. He was reported as having underlying health conditions. The health department has reported thirty-five (35) COVID related deaths for Port Arthur as of today.      

We emphasize again that COVID-19 is a very serious disease. While 80% of individuals who contract COVID-19 will have mild to moderate symptoms and fully recover, they may spread the disease to people who are at high risk. The elderly and people with underlying health conditions or weakened immune systems are at a much higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19. We strongly advise at-risk individuals to minimize contact with others who are ill and practice social distancing and wear a mask when in public.
