hot-topic_03-220x138-2130637Monmouth County’s government reported 97 new confirmed COVID-19 cases among county residents Thursday, as other data also showed the pandemic continuing a monthlong weakening.

 

With the number of new daily fatalities statewide down from 458 on April 30 to 62 Thursday, Governor Phil Murphy’s administration reported 365 New Jerseyans were admitted to hospitals with COVID-19 as of 10 p.m. Wednesday.

The densely populated state still leads the nation in the number of residents hospitalized per 100,000 population, a figure that stood at 31 Thursday, Murphy said at his daily crisis briefing.

“We are still digging out of this,” he said.

• The state health Department’s COVID-19 dashboard reported 3 more deaths in Monmouth County, for a total of 578 in the pandemic.
