After seeing the overall infection rate for Connecticut residents testing positive for COVID-19 climbed above 10 percent earlier this week, the number has dramatically dipped back to nearly 4 percent as the state and country combat the recent surge in new cases.

In his latest update, Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont said that 22,171 COVID-19 tests were administered in Connecticut on Wednesday, Jan. 13, resulting in 968 positive cases for a 4.37 percent positive infection rate, down from 6.23 percent the day before.

Lamont said that the number of COVID-19 patients hospitalized with the virus outpaced new admissions, with the total number in Connecticut hospitals down from 1,148 to 1,118.

Seventeen new virus-related deaths were reported, bringing the death toll to 6,553 since the pandemic began.

A total of 221,544 positive COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Connecticut out of more than 4.83 million tested.
