Sunday’s tally of 1,428 new virus cases followed the recent trend of lower infection counts. The seven-day average of confirmed cases is now 1,232 cases, a decline from 6,241 cases in the first week of January.
The state’s count of estimated active cases is down to 30,062, a drop from 98,750 cases at the start of the year.
Sunday’s 52 new virus deaths bring the state’s total recorded death toll to 16,118. The seven-day average of daily deaths is now 37, down from 77 daily deaths a few weeks ago. That figure peaked at 175 daily deaths in late April.
Statewide hospitalizations have also been decreasing. Hospitalizations on Sunday dropped by 25 patients, bringing the total to 760 patients. The hospitalization count has gone down every day since Feb. 8.
The seven-day average of the number of people hospitalized for COVID-19 has declined from 2,347 patients at the start of January to an average of 847 patients now.
Of the state’s 16,118 total deaths from the virus, 8,582 have been in long-term care facilities.
The U.S. virus death toll surpassed 500,000 last week. The 513,052 total U.S. deaths as of Sunday afternoon is the highest death tally in the world.
