New Jersey reports a “continued flattening” of coronavirus cases, governor says
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy reported an additional 3,457 coronavirus cases, bringing the statewide total to 105,523.
The governor also reported an additional 249 deaths bringing the total to 5,863.
“We see continued flattening,” the governor said today. “We cannot ease up one bit on our social distancing.”
Murphy said a lot of the folks who tested positive have now “battled and won” against the virus.
“We need to see more progress and more slowing before we can begin implementing any effort to get ourselves on the road to the new normal that awaits our state on the other side of this pandemic,” he added. “Those curves are all going largely in the right direction.”
