An additional 44 positive tests for the Covid-19 virus were reported by the Imperial County Public Health Department Wednesday.

Twenty of those cases came from the Calexico are and 12 from El Centro. There are now 647 total positive cases and 324 are considered active. There was another death reported Wednesday and that brings the total deaths to 14. Three hundred and nine individuals have recovered from the virus.
