work session

Cochise County Health and Social Services Director Alicia Thompson addresses participants at Friday’s Board of Supervisors COVID-19 overview work session in Bisbee.

BISBEE — The fact that 47 people have died of COVID-19 in the last month should be a wake-up call to county residents who remain on the fence wondering if they should get the shot as the third wave of infections continues to rise, according to one local official.

As Cochise County Supervisor Ann English put it, “Forty-seven deaths are bound to have affected all the communities in the county. When we hear 47 people have died in a (month) — that’s not normal. We should be upset about it. Those are your friends and neighbors. We need to get the truth out and the myths busted.”
