Another 152 coronavirus cases have been reported across the state, Maine health officials said Thursday.

Thursday’s report brings the total number of coronavirus cases in Maine to 70,996, according to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s up from 70,844 on Wednesday.

Of those, 51,743 have been confirmed positive, while 19,253 were classified as “probable cases,” the Maine CDC reported.

No new deaths were reported Thursday, leaving the statewide death toll at 900.

The number of coronavirus cases diagnosed in the past 14 days statewide is 1,216. 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 up from 1,170 on Wednesday.

The new case rate statewide Thursday was 1.14 cases per 10,000 residents, and the total case rate statewide was 530.45.

Maine’s seven-day average for new coronavirus cases is 107.6, up from 102.9 a day ago, up from 69 a week ago and up from 20 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.

So far, 2,162 Mainers have been hospitalized at some point with COVID-19, the illness caused by the new coronavirus. Of those, 44 people are currently hospitalized, with 18 in critical care and seven on ventilators.

The total statewide hospitalization rate on Thursday was 16.15 patients per 10,000 residents.
