Another six makers have died on Thursday as health officials, with 735 new coronovirus cases reported across the state.
According to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention Thursday, the total number of coronovirus cases in Maine is 21,226. He is up from 20,491 on Wednesday.
Of those, 18,258 have been confirmed positive, while 2,968 were classified as “probable cases”, the Maine CDC reported.
An Oroostook County resident, three Oxford County residents, a Penobscot County resident and a York County resident suffering from the virus have brought the statewide death toll to 317. Almost all deaths occurred in Meyers at age 60.
Thursday’s report marked the second time new cases have risen above 700 in Maine and the seventh time in the past 10 days. Maine saw more than 700 new cases for the first time on Wednesday.
The agency’s director, Nirav Shah, said on Wednesday, the latest surge in new cases could be due to the main CDC investigators approving a backlog in cases. Despite the record-breaking numbers Maine has seen in recent times, Shah said virus transmission may be stable.
Health officials have warned Mainers that “tremendous and widespread” community broadcasts are being watched throughout the state. Every county is watching high community broadcasts, which the Maine CDC defines as the case rate per 10,000 people in 16 or more cases.
There are two criteria for establishing community broadcasting: at least 10 confirmed cases and at least 25 percent of them are either not connected to known cases or travel.
So far, 1,015 Mainers have been hospitalized at some point with COVID-19, a disease caused by the new coronavirus. Currently, information on hospitalization was not immediately available.
Meanwhile, 39 more manors have been recovered from coronovirus, bringing the total reported recovery to 11,078. This means the state has at least 9,831 active confirmed and “probable” cases, up from 9,141 on Wednesday.
The actual number of Mayan CDC data is less likely to recover as investigators have struggled with the surge in virus transmission, making it difficult to follow up on previous cases to confirm recovery. Instead, the Maine CDC is only releasing data on recoveries that directly report it. Underreported recoveries affect the estimated number of potentially active cases across the state.
According to the Maine CDC, the majority of cases – 12,456 – have been in the manor under the age of 50, while women have had more cases than men.
As of Wednesday, 1,110,800 out of 1,137,245 negative test results have been received. About 2.3 percent of all tests came out positive, the most recently available Maine CDC data show.
Coronoviruses have hit the hardest in Cumberland County, where 6,313 cases have been reported and where 90 of the virus deaths have been concentrated. Other cases have been reported in Androscoggin (2,391), Arostoc (477), Franklin (435), Hancock (497), Kennebec (1,586), Knox (325), Lincoln (272), Oxford (1,032), Pencotsot (1,822) . , Pissavquis (103), Sagdahok (340), Somerset (684), Waldo (362), Washington (331) and York (4,257) counties. Information about an additional two case reports was not immediately available.
