Health officials on Tuesday reported three additional deaths and 29 more coronavirus cases across the state.

The three latest deaths bring the statewide death toll to 848.

It comes a day after Maine saw only 13 new coronavirus cases reported statewide, the smallest increase in daily cases since September.

As of Tuesday, 733,056 Mainers have received a first dose of the vaccine, while 752,306 have received a final dose. That’s an additional 4,761 doses administered since Monday.

The number of coronavirus cases diagnosed in the past 14 days statewide is 813. This is an estimation of the current number of active cases in the state, as the Maine CDC is no longer tracking recoveries for all patients. That’s down from 823 on Tuesday and 1,706 two weeks ago.

Tuesday’s report brings the total number of coronavirus cases in Maine to 68,632, according to the Maine CDC. That’s up from 68,603 on Monday.

Of those, 50,182 have been confirmed positive, while 18,450 are classified as “probable cases,” the Maine CDC reported.

The new case rate statewide Tuesday is .22 cases per 10,000 residents, and the total case rate statewide is 512.79.

Maine’s seven-day average for new coronavirus cases is 46, down from 51 a day ago, down from 72 a week ago and down from 246.6 a month ago. That average peaked on Jan. 14 at 625.3.

The most cases have been detected in Mainers younger than 20, while Mainers over 80 years old make up the majority of deaths. More cases and deaths have been recorded in women than men.
