Massachusetts coronavirus cases rise to 366, highest single-day count since late May

Health officials on Tuesday reported 366 new coronavirus cases as infections rose to the state’s highest level in nearly two months.

The 366 COVID cases are the first single-day infection tally that has crossed 300 cases since May 26.

After coronavirus restrictions were lifted in late May, cases fell to record-low levels amid vaccine rollouts. But since early July, the number of infections has been rising as the more contagious Delta variant circulates to the Gulf state and country.

The seven-day average cases now stand at 218 daily cases, more than triple the 64 daily cases reported at the end of June. 64 daily cases were a record low for the pandemic.

Six more COVID deaths were reported on Tuesday, taking the total death toll in the state to 18,033.

The seven-day average of deaths now stands at 1.9, slightly above last week’s record low of 1.0.

The average percentage of positivity has jumped amid the rise in cases. The seven-day average of percentage positivity is now 1.18%, almost quadruple the pandemic low of 0.31% last month.
