Massachusetts reported no new deaths from Covid-19 on Tuesday, the first time in months that officials reported no new deaths in a daily update.
Once an epicenter for coronavirus outbreak in the United States, Massachusetts has lost at least 8,054 residents to the pandemic. That number itself was down by one since yesterday, a decrease the Massachusetts Department of Health attributed to "ongoing data cleaning which identifies and removes duplicate reports," according to the data released Tuesday evening.
Hospitalizations from Covid-19 have been dropping across the state in recent weeks, as well. As of Tuesday, 733 Massachusetts residents are currently hospitalized with the disease.
The state reported their first death related to the coronavirus on March 20, according to data from the Massachusetts Department of Health.
