Coronavirus: Massachusetts Up To 1159 Cases, 11 Deaths

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Massachusetts Department of Public Health announced 382 new cases of coronavirus in the state Tuesday, as well as two new deaths.

That now brings the total number deaths in the Commonwealth to 11, and the total number of cases to 1159.

The two most recent deaths were a woman in her 80s from Middlesex County and another in her 60s from Berkshire County. DPH said both were hospitalized and had underlying health conditions. The 11 Massachusetts residents who have died ranged in age from their 50s to their 90s.

Testing numbers, though, are up as well—a total of 13,749 people have been tested for COVID-19 across the state.

Middlesex County has the most cases with 304, followed by Suffolk County with 234, Norfolk County with 129, and Essex County with 118.

Those between the ages of 30-60 account for most of the cases.

A total of 99 cases are attributed to the Biogen conference held in Boston last month, with 120 tied to local transmission, 86 deemed travel related, and 854 cases still under investigation.

MassDPH said 94 patients were hospitalized with the virus.
