Other data released by the city shows that the 31 to 40 age bracket has the most coronavirus cases, 112, followed by the 17 to 30 age group – 81.

Furthermore, the virus has impact men and woman almost equally, with 183 male patients and 189 female patients, and that each fatality has been 50 years of age or older.

Specifically, nine deaths were between the ages of 76 and 115, eight deaths were in patients ages 61 to 75, and two other fatal cases between the ages of 51 and 60.

Around 1 p.m., the New Jersey Department of Health said there are 9,956 cases of the coronavirus, the second most in the state by county, along with 434 deaths – the third most in the state by county.

According to the mayor’s office, the coronavirus infection rate is .88 percent in New Jersey, 1.5 percent in Hudson County, and .07 percent in the Mile Square City.

“In other words – all the work that you’ve been doing to self-isolate and social distance is saving people from infection, and lives from being lost,” Bhalla added, noting that he’s grateful for everyone that has done things like wearing face covers, keeping their children out of parks, and delivering groceries for seniors.
