Henrico, Va. (Newsradiowrva.com) --  Canterbury Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center has apparently suffered a fourth coronavirus death.  Henrico Health District Director Dr. Danny Avula saying testing protocol leaves them unable to confirm the coronavirus tie just yet.  However, it is highly suspected.

The facility, according to Avula, has 14 positive patient cases, and four positive healthcare workers.  There are also another 16 potential cases among residents.

Avula says the facility is correctly handling the cases, isolating them and their caregivers.  He says it is very possible that we don't know exactly how this disease travels, and that people who don't show symptoms could be transmitting it as well.
