Four more Mainers have died and another 876 coronavirus cases have been reported across the state, Maine health officials said Saturday.
Saturday’s report brings the total number of coronavirus cases in Maine to 123,118, according to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s up from 122,242 on Friday.

The number of coronavirus cases diagnosed in the past 14 days statewide is 7,216. 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 down from 7,233 on Friday.
