Another 26 cases of the new coronavirus have been reported in Maine, health officials said Friday.

Friday’s count brings the total coronavirus cases reported in Maine to 3,757. Of those, 3,357 had been confirmed positive, while 400 were classified as “probable cases,” according to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

New cases were reported in Androscoggin (12), Cumberland (6), Kennebec (1), Sagadahoc (1), Somerset (1) and York (5) counties, Maine CDC data show.

The agency revised Thursday’s cumulative total to 3,731, down from 3,737, meaning there was a net increase of 20 over the previous day’s report, state data show. As the Maine CDC continues to investigate previously reported cases, some are determined to have not been the coronavirus, or coronavirus cases not involving Mainers. Those are removed from the state’s cumulative total.

No new deaths were reported Friday, leaving the statewide death toll at 118. Nearly all deaths have been in Mainers over age 60.

So far, 378 Mainers have been hospitalized at some point with COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus. Of those, 12 people are currently hospitalized, with nine in critical care and three on ventilators.

Meanwhile, 20 more people have recovered from the coronavirus, bringing total recoveries to 3,259. That means there are 380 active and “probable” cases in the state, which is unchanged from Thursday.

A majority of the cases — 2,089 — have been in Mainers under age 50, while more cases have been reported in women than men, according to the Maine CDC.

As of Friday, there have been 153,565 negative test results out of 158,838 overall. Just under 3 percent of all tests have come back positive, Maine CDC data show.

The coronavirus has hit hardest in Cumberland County, where 1,990 cases have been reported and where the bulk of virus deaths — 68 — have been concentrated. It is one of four counties — the others are Androscoggin, Penobscot and York, with 527, 136 and 609 cases, respectively — where “community transmission” has been confirmed, according to the Maine CDC.

There are two criteria for establishing community transmission: at least 10 confirmed cases and that at least 25 percent of those are not connected to either known cases or travel. That second condition has not yet been “satisfied” in other counties.

Other cases have been reported in Aroostook (31), Franklin (45), Hancock (19), Kennebec (154), Knox (25), Lincoln (31), Oxford (48), Piscataquis (3), Sagadahoc (39), Somerset (33), Waldo (60) and Washington (5) counties. Information about where another two cases were reported wasn’t immediately available Friday morning.

As of Friday morning, the coronavirus has sickened 4,039,523 people in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as caused 144,308 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University of Medicine.
