“We unfortunately lost two additional seniors [Friday] to COVID-19, as a male in his mid 60s and a female in her late 70s. I keep them and all 15 community members we lost in my thoughts and prayers,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in a statement.

“We also had another nine confirmed cases of COVID-19 today, with an overall total of 278 cases. I appreciate the continued work of the Hoboken Health Department for their continued outreach to all those who were in close contact with those in order to self-quarantine.”

While the amount of cases per age group was not released, the mayor said the 31 to 40 age group still has the most coronavirus patients, with two cases in children below 16 years old.
