Six days in a row with a COVID-19 death in Albany County
Mike Goodwin reports in the Times Union that Albany County announced another COVID-19 death Oct. 12, the sixth day in a row that the virus took the life of a resident there. So far, 413 people have died from coronavirus in Albany County. County officials did not say whether the person was vaccinated or not. Last week, Columbia County officials said that no one there who was vaccinated has died from COVID-19. Albany County Executive Daniel McCoy did say in a statement, “The best way to protect yourselves and loved ones and stop the spread of the virus is by getting the shot if you haven’t already and encouraging family and friends to do the same. And whether or not you’ve been vaccinated, I’m urging everyone to wear a mask while at indoor public places, because we know the virus can still spread among those who have gotten the shot.” Read more about this story in the Times Union.
