“This increase in the number of our deceased fellow St. Louisans shows us why we must continue to physically distance ourselves from our friends, neighbors, and extended family,” says Dr. Fredrick Echols, director of health for the City of St. Louis. “We are still working to flatten the curve here in the City, and it must take us all working together through this difficult time.”
