Twenty-three more Mainers have died and another 1,414 coronavirus cases reported across the state, Maine health officials said Friday.

Friday’s report brings the total number of coronavirus cases in Maine to 179,915, according to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s up from 178,501 on Thursday.

Of those, 132,560 have been confirmed positive, while 47.355 were classified as “probable cases,” the Maine CDC reported.

Eight women and 19 men have succumbed to the virus, bringing the statewide death toll to 1,800.

The number of coronavirus cases diagnosed in the past 14 days statewide is 14,224. 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 14,177 on Thursday.
