Approximately 8.6% of those tested for coronavirus over the past week were positive, Gov. Charlie Baker said at a news conference Wednesday.
The number has declined from the 20% or 30% in April, Baker said.
On Tuesday, about 4,900 Covid-19 tests were reported, bringing the total amount of tests completed in the state to more than 545,000, according to Baker.
There are currently about 2,100 individuals hospitalized due to Covid-19, Baker said, which has continued to trend downward over the course of the past few weeks.
"These numbers show steady progress and we’re going to continue to carefully monitor them,” Baker said.
