TRENTON, NJ - Governor Phil Murphy did not hold a press conference on Sunday but did release the latest COVID-19 figures from around the state, but he did note that the "total case count is lower than yesterday’s case count due to an issue related to electronic receipt of lab results and a high volume of duplicate case merges. This situation is being looked into closely and will tried to be resolved as quickly as possible."
In New Jersey, there were 144 new cases reported, with 11 new deaths. Statewide, there are 176,783 positive cases and 13,732 deaths, and 1,974 probable COVID-19 deaths.
According to Murphy, Bergen County has 19,980 positive cases, and followed by Hudson (19,248), Essex (19,105), Middlesex (17,158), and Passaic (17,162) with 674 under investigation.
As of 10 p.m. Saturday, Murphy noted there were 766 patients in the hospital being treated for COVID-19, with 149 patients were in ICU or critical care, and 65 patients on ventilators.
