BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – A Louisiana police chief recovers from COVID-19 while a longtime fire chief has died of complications from illness caused by the novel coronavirus.

Bruce Cutrer, who headed Tangipahoa Fire District No.1 in Amite, died of complications from COVID-19 on Tuesday, the Louisiana State Fireman’s Association said.

“Chief Cutrer dedicated his life to the people of Tangipahoa parish. For over 50 years he risked his life to help his friends, neighbors and complete strangers when they needed it, and as a community we mourn the loss of this man who was truly a public servant. Tangipahoa Parish President Robby Dit Miller.

Miller ordered the flags of all parish buildings to half-fly in honor of Cutrer, WAFB-TV reported.

The Louisiana Department of Health reported 2,536 new cases of the coronavirus on Wednesday, bringing the total of confirmed and probable cases to 374,582. In addition, 59 new deaths bring that total to 8,383.

Meanwhile, Youngsville Police Chief Rickey Boudreaux said his symptoms of COVID were severe, KLFY-TV reported.

“I ended up in the hospital to receive the antibody infusion,” said the chief. “I could barely breathe, the fever, body aches and headaches were horrible; but now i seem to be on the mend.

Boudreaux admitted that he sometimes let his guard down in the fight against the coronavirus.

“I thought if I didn’t have it now, I wasn’t going to get it, but I have it,” the chef said.

As a precaution, the administrative office of the department was closed until Monday. Patrollers will be working at all times and the community will be protected, Boudreaux said.
