SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Shasta County reported 60 new COVID-19 related deaths during the month of January.

During the last week, 10 people died and six of them were reported on Wednesday.

35% of the 60 people who have died in January are over the age of 70. The youngest person to die was a man in his 30’s.

If a person dies with an underlying condition, Shasta Public Health says that those conditions will be listed on the death certificate. The death is then classified as ‘COVID related’ because the underlying condition would not have caused the death.

As of Wednesday evening, Shasta County has a total of 10,212 confirmed COVID-19 cases.
