The formulation of Connecticut’s strategy for restarting the economy is quickly gaining momentum, according to the co-chairs of the Reopen Connecticut Advisory Board, as the state’s COVID-19-related deaths grew since yesterday by 103 to total 971.
The state’s number of COVID-19-related deaths grew by a dramatic 197 today, bringing the total to 868, though Gov. Ned Lamont said that was due mainly to a large batch of data just received by the Department of Health from the Office of the Medical Examiner.
The governor said that, according to Office of Policy and Management Secretary Melissa McCaw, the state has withstood about $450 million in coronavirus-related expenses. "Connecticut right now is doing better than a lot of other states," Lamont said, noting the strength of its rainy day fund.
According to the Department of Public Health, Fairfield County's COVID-positive cases jumped by nearly 500 since yesterday, to a total of 6,004, with another 22 hospitalizations for a total of 710. The county recorded another 14 deaths to bring that total to 262.

Although Connecticut added another 45 COVID-19-related deaths since yesterday, bringing its total to 380, Gov. Ned Lamont said the rate of increase in hospitalizations is "not going up -- in fact, it may be going down a little bit," a possible sign that the state's number of coronavirus incidents has peaked.
Fairfield County still has the state’s largest number of coronavirus incidents, with 4,417 confirmed cases, 665 hospitalizations and 155 deaths.
Connecticut added another 49 COVID-19-related deaths since yesterday, bringing its total to 326. Another 110 persons have been hospitalized, bringing that total to 1,418. The new to-date numbers of tests conducted and of positive results are expected later tonight, Gov. Ned Lamont said. Updated county-by-county information is also not yet available.
