For the third time this week, a Champaign County resident has died from COVID-19, local public health officials said Saturday.

C-U Public Health Administrator Julie Pryde told The News-Gazette that the county's 12th fatality was a man in his 30s with an unspecified health condition.

He becomes the county's youngest person to die from COVID-19 during the pandemic.

Earlier in the week, officials announced the deaths of a man in his 40s with no known health conditions and a man in his 70s with underlying conditions.

Meanwhile, the number of newly confirmed cases in Champaign County remained low Saturday.

A day after the county total grew by just one, five positive results emerged from 607 new tests Saturday. That's a positivity rate of 0.8 percent — a third of Saturday's statewide rate (634 cases, 25,965 tests, 2.4 percent).

Of Champaign County's now-766 confirmed cases, 697 are considered recovered and 57 are active.

Eight county residents are hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms.
