COVID-19 Infections Rise by 43% in Wake County Over Past Week

Wake County is averaging more than 800 cases for every 100,000 residents–the highest in the state. The rise in infections and other metrics led the county to jump from “low” to “medium” risk yesterday. Wake County is one of only two counties in North Carolina at this risk level. Cumberland County saw a 40% increase in cases and Durham County reported 20% more cases in the past week.
