Dr. Wilma Wooten said there are 49 suspected hepatitis cases and one death still under investigation. A week ago, there were 44 cases, and the number of investigations has bounced from roughly 30 to 50 at any given time for several months, public health officials said.

“Until the numbers start dropping, we won’t have a clear indication of whether we have turned the corner or not,” Wooten said after making a presentation to the county Board of Supervisors.

She said the overall case count jumped to 461 Tuesday, with 315 hospitalizations since November and 17 deaths. That’s an increase of one death, 17 cases and 10 hospitalizations from a week ago.
