“In an effort to keep the public fully informed about the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in our region and community, Mayor Nicholas Sacco and [the] Health Department will be posting daily totals on the number of reported positive cases,” a website post from Saturday says.

In the post, they indicate that 14 residents have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

They did not mention any additional details about the new patients, five more than when they announced nine patients on Thursday, whose ages range from 29 to 78 years old.

At around 2 p.m., the New Jersey Department of Health posted new numbers on their website, indicating that there are now 1,904 confirmed COVID-19 cases across the state and 126 throughout Hudson County.

As of now, 104 coronavirus cases have been announced publicly in Hudson County: 53 in Jersey City, 19 in Hoboken, two in West New York, four in Kearny, one in Secaucus, four in Weehawken, 14 in North Bergen, and seven in Bayonne.
