New Jersey announced 461 new cases of Covid-19 on Tuesday, bringing the statewide total to more than 171,600, Gov. Phil Murphy announced today.
The state reported 47 new deaths. The total number of confirmed Covid-19-related fatalities in New Jersey is now 13,181.
Murphy noted that he and the state’s health commissioner believe that the low number of fatalities reported on Monday — 18 — may have been the result of a glitch in the state’s recording systems.
