Covid in New Jersey Up 139% From a Month Ago

The masks are coming off and the restrictions gradually subsiding, but Covid-19 isn’t going away in the Garden State.

On Thursday, New Jersey reported 2,369 positive Covid tests – 700 more than the previous day – and seven new deaths.

The 7-day average for positive Covid tests in New Jersey is now up 3% from a week ago and a stunning 139% from just a month ago.

As of Wednesday night, there were 425 people in New Jersey hospitals with confirmed or suspected cases of Covid-19, with 54 in the ICU and 20 on ventilators.

Despite the rise in cases, almost all of New Jersey’s 21 counties were considered to have “low” rates of transmission according to CDC guidelines.

  1. Stop with your stupid lying numbers! Don’t give us the number of positives based on number of tests .

    If I have 10 people living in my house and two people have strep because those two people got tested, the positive rate is not 100%! It’s only 20%!

    Stop with your public school math for ignoramuses. The real number using the 7-day average, is 0.17% This is way lower than your fake math.
