Connecticut COVID Rate Spikes Over 4 Percent
Governor Ned Lamont announced Tuesday that Connecticut's daily coronavirus positivity rate has spiked to almost 4.1 percent, the highest the state has seen since early June.
“That’s not unexpected but is still wakes you up like a cold shower," the governor told a news conference. "We could see what was going on in a lot of states around the country and even states in our region.”
The percentage of COVID-19 tests coming back positive has been trending up in recent weeks. The governor said an additional 22 people are now hospitalized with the illness. The number of people in the hospital with coronavirus is approaching 300.
