The COVID-19 count took another dramatic drop Friday, with the Alabama Department of Public Health reporting only 321 confirmed new cases for the latest 24-hour period.

That was the lowest daily count since 390 cases were reported on June 17. It brought the average daily number for the past week to 801, the lowest since an average of 764 on June 28.

The figures brought Alabama’s total number of cases since the pandemic began in mid-Marsh to 107,804; Friday’s 16 deaths left the total at 1,921. Another 4,966 cases and 69 deaths are listed as probably associated with the coronavirus.

The Dashboard’s totals included downward adjustments to the totals for 13 counties, all in the single digits. Seven other counties had no new cases in the report.

Mobile County led the state with 51 new cases, bringing its total to 11,380. Jefferson County, which had daily numbers as high as 300 over the past month, listed only 24 cases; it leads the state with 1,443 cases.
