JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) — The Mississippi State Department of Health reported 381 new coronavirus cases Thursday, but the agency never produced a county-by-county update on cases.
MSDH said on its website it blamed the delay on data processing problems.
With the new cases, Mississippi's number of cases climbed to 21,022.
State Health Officer Doctor Thomas Dobbs did say during the state's coronavirus news conference there were 5 new deaths from the coronavirus.
That puts the death toll since March at 942.
