New Jersey reported more than 4,500 new positive Covid-19 cases Sunday, according to a tweet from New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy.
“These numbers are ALARMING and continue to rise. Take this seriously. Wear a mask. Social distance. Stay safe,” the governor tweeted.
The state also reported 18 deaths from the virus.
This brings the statewide Covid-19 total cases to 279,274 and total number of deaths from the virus to 14,765.
One thing to note: These numbers were released by the city’s health agency, and may not line up exactly in real time with CNN’s database drawn from Johns Hopkins University and the Covid Tracking Project.
