The overall positive rate of those being tested in Connecticut for COVID-19 is now hovering around 9 percent as the number of new cases continues to surge during the holiday season.

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont said that the health department was reporting 2,045 new COVID-19 cases statewide on Wednesday, Dec. 30, up from 1,696 the day before, bringing the total number of positive cases to 185,708 since March.

The 8.95 percent positivity rate is among the highest the state has seen since Connecticut began combating the second wave of COVID-19, slightly down from 9.14 the previous day.

Thirty-one new COVID-19-related deaths were reported in the past 24 hours, bringing the death toll to 5,995 since the pandemic began spreading in early March.
