Neshoba County now ranks second behind Forrest County with the highest cases of coronavirus over one week starting May 11 and second behind Holmes County in cases proportional to population, according to new figures released Saturday.

The rankings count cases based on the date of testing, not the date the test result was reported, and count only those cases where the date of testing is known.

Neshoba County reported 34 more cases on Saturday for a total of 511. There have been 30 deaths in the county. Sixty-four of the total cases are in long-term care facilities where 16 of the deaths were.

The rise in cases comes amid the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians on Friday criminalizing violations of coronavirus quarantine or knowingly passing along the illness with violators facing a $600 fine and/or six months in jail.

More than half the case, 286, are among Native Americans with 114 African-American, 91 white and about 16 as other or unknown, the state reported.
