  • Globally: 8,256,725 cases; 144,160 today. 2-week average: 126,037
  • Global deaths: 445,959; 6,909 today. 2-week average: 4,568

  • US deaths: 119,132. 849 today. 2-week average: 814
  • Salem’s cumulative total has gone up and down several times in the last twelve days, but has not been more than 268, nor lower than 265.
  • Salem now has less than 50 active cases of COVID. The only communities with more than 50 are Manchester, Goffstown, Bedford and Nashua.
  • Three days ago, Nashua had less than 50 active cases. Two days ago, they were back at 50. Yesterday they jumped up to 57. Today, it went back up to 63 again.
  • As of today, my numbers tell us that 0.4% of the NH population has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • 3.79% of today’s tests were positive. That’s a slight increase, after 4 days of under 2% and the highest number in 2 weeks.
  • Only 7.50% percent of the NH population has been tested.
  • 3.79% of today’s tests were positive. That’s a slight increase, after 4 days of under 2.0% (yesterday was 1.57%), and the highest in two weeks. This is one of the metrics watched by the State.
  • Of the 73 new positive cases in NH today, approximately 75% were associated with recurring testing of residents and staff at three long-term care facilities. 19 were not.
  • Only three communities had large jumps today: Manchester (+26), Bedford (+22), and Nashua (+11). It’s likely safe to believe that 54 of these 59 are the 75%
  • After a couple of days with the active cases falling below 1,000, that has now jumped back to over that threshold.
  • 37 more people have recovered from COVID-19. Unfortunately, with the number of new cases, we went from 76% of all confirmed cases have recovered, down to 75%
  • 10 more people were hospitalized in the 24-hour period covered by this report. Happily, the number of current hospitalizations went down by six, for a total of 56 patients. This is one of the metrics that the State is watching.
  • Hospitalizations remain at 10% of all confirmed cases
