Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards (D) gave an update on the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. He discussed the increase in confirmed positive cases of coronavirus in the state, with 510 new cases from the previous day, bringing the total to 2,305, which is a 28% increase from the earlier numbers. The governor urged people to follow the state’s mitigation guidelines, saying that they need to “understand that this coronavirus is in your neighborhood, it is spreading through the state of Louisiana,” and that “it’s quite frankly the case, that the life you save could be your own.” He also noted that the new numbers now have Louisiana tied for second, with New Jersey, for total number of per capita positive cases of coronavirus in the United States. close
