NJ COVID-19 Numbers

There have been 17 new deaths stemming from coronavirus, an increase that Gov. Phil Murphy said is New Jersey’s biggest single-day jump yet. Murphy called the report sobering and said the state has become No. 2 in the nation for positive COVID-19 results, but said that is the result of much more testing over recent days. The total number of positive cases climbed overnight by more than 800 and stands at nearly 3,700, the governor said. There have been a total of 44 deaths.
