Utah Reports 15 More COVID-19 Deaths As Surge Persists

Utah has reported 15 more coronavirus deaths following medical examiner investigations as the pandemic spikes in the state. 

Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Erik Christensen said his office has seen a “notable increase” in the number of virus-related death investigations they’ve conducted in the past few days. Nine of the 15 newly confirmed deaths hit last week, preceded by two earlier in September, two in August and two in July. Utah has been in the midst of a record-setting surge in coronavirus cases over the past month. The surge has been largely driven by college-age students in Utah County.
