  • It is a good day for Salem, with no new confirmed cases of COVID-19.
  • NH infections seem to be yoyoing up and down. Today they were down. Out of 1,314 tests, there was a very low 0.99% positivity rate.
  • Merrimack had its 100th case yesterday.
  • NH has had over 150,884 negative test results.
  • Active cases are at a new low, with 393 people still infected. That’s only 6% of those who have been infected.
  • There were no new hospitalizations, but we lost two more lives. Hospitalization continues to be “about” 10%. Today it’s 10.6% of all cases. Fatalities are 6.3% of all cases.
  • Today’s numbers for the Big Four — Global new infections and deaths, and US new infections and deaths — were significantly more than the two-week average. With over 303,000 new cases, Global infections set a new high at least for the time I’ve been watching that data. (Source: WorldOmeter)
