• Evidence is increasing about the high rates of infection in people who do not have symptoms and don’t know they are infectious. This places everyone at risk of getting the virus or unknowingly transmitting it to someone else. Steps we can take to protect ourselves and others include:
 Practicing social distancing
 Wearing a mask in public
 Avoiding group gatherings
 Regularly washing your hands
 Staying home if sick

Florence County has the highest number of COVID-19 cases and deaths in our viewing area.

According to DHEC’s website, Florence has the fourth-highest number of COVID-19 deaths in the state with 26 while Horry County has the sixth-highest death toll with 18. Richland and Greenville counties have the first and second highest death tolls, respectively.

Below, we have broken down case totals and death totals for local counties. We’ve also included what proportion of the state’s total cases and deaths each county accounts for. These basic calculations are based on DHEC’s COVID-19 numbers as of Thursday morning.

  • Horry - 18 deaths, 273 cases -- 3.3 % of state’s total cases and 4.9% of state’s total deaths
  • Georgetown - 3 deaths, 51 cases -- .6% of state’s total cases and 0.8% of state’s total deaths
  • Florence - 26 deaths, 469 cases -- 5.8% of state’s total cases and 7.1% of state’s total deaths
  • Darlington - 5 deaths, 177 cases -- 2.2% of state’s total cases and 1.3% of state’s total deaths
  • Dillon - 0 deaths, 104 cases -- 1.3% of state’s total cases and 0% of state’s total deaths
  • Marion - 4 deaths, 48 cases -- .6% of state’s total cases and 1.1% of state’s total deaths
  • Marlboro - 0 deaths, 60 cases -- .74% of state’s total cases and 0% of state’s total deaths

ABC 15 has also asked DHEC to provide a break-down of Grand Strand and Pee Dee counties’ death totals by age, gender, and race, in an effort to better understand what is going on in our area. However, a DHEC spokesperson told us they don’t keep track of that information by county. ABC 15 asked DHEC why and this was their spokesperson’s response:

This could lead to someone being identified. We continue to provide statewide demographic data that’s updated twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays.
