CT Coronavirus Updates: Number Of Confirmed Cases Exceeds 25,000

Brian McCready

CONNECTICUT — The total number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Connecticut is now at 25,269 and the number of deaths has risen to 1,924, according to the state Department of Public Health. There are currently 1,766 people hospitalized due to the coronavirus.

The number of positive cases rose by 687 over the past 24 hours, while deaths increased by 62 and the number of hospitalizations dipped by another 44. Just under 80,000 people have been tested.

“When you take a broad look at the data over the last two weeks, we’ve shown that we can flatten the curve and control the spread of this virus through kinds of social distancing measures that we’ve implemented – but we are not out of the woods yet,” Gov. Ned Lamont said. “When it comes creating an action plan on the steps we should take next, our primary objective needs to focus on not causing any harm to the progress we have made so far, otherwise our infection and hospitalization rates will go right back up. Our health care system has been amazing throughout this pandemic, and we are going to continue working with them to ramp up testing even more, including through antibody tests and contact tracing. This approach is key to getting people back to work and ensuring that workers are adequately protected when they return.”

Here are the number of confirmed cases, deaths and hospitalizations by county:

  • Fairfield County 10,529 cases; 707 deaths; 635 hospitalizations
  • Hartford County 4,989 cases; 579 deaths; 426 hospitalizations
  • Litchfield County 864 cases; 74 deaths; 22 hospitalizations
