Another 714 coronavirus cases have been reported across the state, Maine health officials said Friday.
Friday’s report brings the total number of coronavirus cases in Maine to 86,586, according to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s up from 85,872 on Thursday.
Of those, 61,965 have been confirmed positive, while 24,621 were classified as “probable cases,” the Maine CDC reported.
No new deaths were reported Friday, leaving the statewide death toll at 1,009.
The number of coronavirus cases diagnosed in the past 14 days statewide is 6,657. 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 6.449 on Thursday.
The new case rate statewide Friday was 5.33 cases per 10,000 residents, and the total case rate statewide was 646.93.
Maine’s seven-day average for new coronavirus cases is 466.9, up from 466.6 the day before, down from 484.6 a week ago and up from 160.6 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.
