Massachusetts coronavirus cases spike 4,985, hospitalizations rise

Massachusetts health officials reported 4,985 new coronavirus cases Thursday, while state officials also reported 44 new deaths from the virus as hospitalizations continue to rise.
Thursday’s tally of 4,985 cases follows Wednesday’s case count of 5,450. Case counts have been significantly higher in the weeks after Thanksgiving.
The state Department of Public Health on Thursday reported 44 more virus deaths and one probable virus death, bringing the state’s total COVID-19 death toll to 11,558. The seven-day average of coronavirus daily deaths has dropped from a peak of 161 in May to 45 now.
Of Massachusetts’ 309,247 total recorded cases, at least 206,843 people have recovered. Health officials estimate there are 76,215 active cases across the state.
A total of 1,009 staff and students in Massachusetts schools have tested positive for the coronavirus in the past week, breaking last week’s all time high case count of 923, according to data from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education on Thursday.
The seven-day weighted average of the state’s positive test rate — removing higher education institutions — remains at an elevated level. That number at the start of September was 1.63%, but the rate is now 7.90%.
Statewide coronavirus hospitalizations on Thursday ticked up by 20 patients, bringing the hospitalization total to 1,871.
There are currently 383 COVID-19 patients who are in intensive care units, and 207 patients who are intubated.
The 1,871 total patients is a significant increase from 436 patients at the start of November. The highest peak of Massachusetts’ coronavirus hospitalizations was 3,965 on April 21.
Of the state’s 11,558 total coronavirus deaths, 7,084 are connected to long-term care facilities.
