The positive COVID-19 infection rate is hovering near 2 percent as the state saw less than 800 newly confirmed cases in the past 24 hours following a small spike in new cases earlier in the week.
Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont said that there were 35,512 COVID-19 tests administered across the state on Thursday, Feb. 25, resulting in 787 new cases for a 2.22 percent positivity rate, up slightly, but still one of the lowest numbers recorded since mid-November.
Thirty-four more COVID-19 patients were discharged from Connecticut hospitals, leaving 451 still being treated. The eight new virus-related deaths brought the total to 7,622 since the pandemic began nearly a year ago.
A total of 279,946 positive COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Connecticut residents out of more than 6.67 million tested.
