St. Louis County officials on Saturday evening announced eight additional cases of COVID-19, bringing the total to 17.

But by Saturday night, the state boosted that count to 22.

The St. Louis Department of Health reported 10 positive cases in the city, up three from Friday. 

Meanwhile, the state confirmed 90 cases as of Saturday night, 17 more than it reported on Friday. 

The county had announced 10 total cases on Friday, but one of those people has relocated out of state, the statement said.

The eight additional county cases include a person 20-29 years old that is travel-related. The rest of the cases are of unknown origin. They include two people in their 50s, three people in their 40s, and two people in their 30s.

On Friday, the St. Louis County Department of Health fielded a total of 413 calls.

“As anticipated, the ability to provide reliable statistics pertaining to pending tests or tests sent for analysis has significantly diminished,” the statement said. “This is an encouraging step as more people are being tested by more health care professionals; however, it has an adverse effect on the accuracy of the numbers. Additionally, the statistics provided are not reflective of the epidemic, rather they are reflective of the information now available.”

The city reported 14 pending test results and 72 people being monitored.
