The hospital is also asking people to pray twice daily at 1:19. “Beginning immediately, every night at 1:19 a.m. and every day at 1:19 p.m., if you are able to, and choose to do so, we will pause to offer first a prayer of thanksgiving for the opportunity to impact people’s lives.

The ADPH confirms 12 cases of the virus in Talladega Co with no deaths. Overall, Alabama has confirmed 1,529 cases with 39 reported deaths and 21 confirmed deaths from the virus.

“Reported Deaths” and “Died From Illness” represent the number of individuals who have a positive lab result and are now deceased. To count a person who died from COVID-19 disease, the medical record of the deceased person has to be reviewed by a physician and Infectious Disease and Outbreak staff. Once review is complete, if the death is attributed to COVID-19, the individual will also appear in Died From Illness. Reported Death totals are cumulative and will never decrease.
