New Jersey health officials reported on Friday that there were 3,791 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and another 41 confirmed deaths due to the continued decline in hospitalization and transmission rates.
Governor Phil Murphy announced the latest figures on social media. The 7-day average of the new positive test is 3,066, a decrease of 9% from a week ago and roughly the same as a month ago.
The state said that more than one-third of adults in the state-2,377,803-have been fully vaccinated against COVID-1
The speed of transmission in the state on Friday fell to 0.91 from 0.92 on Thursday. It has fallen steadily from 1.07 on April 5. Any number greater than 1 indicates that the epidemic is increasing, and each new case causes at least one other case. A drop in transmission rate means that transmission is slowing down.
Based on 25,301 tests, the positive rate on Saturday (the most recent available day) was 11.23%. The positive rate on weekends tends to be higher and fewer tests are performed. The positive rate on working days last week hovered between 8% and 9%.
Since the state reported its first case on March 4, 2020, New Jersey has now reported a total of 852,330 confirmed coronavirus cases in more than 12.8 million PCR tests. 119,452 positive antigen tests were also carried out. Those cases are considered possible, and health officials warn that the positive antigen test may overlap with the confirmed PCR test because it is sometimes given together.
9 million people in the state reported 25,094 deaths from COVID-19-related complications-including 212,502 confirmed deaths and 2,592 deaths that may be considered. The weekly revised number of possible deaths increased by 19 on Wednesday.

According to the state’s information center, New Jersey has reported 245 outbreaks of coronavirus in schools, resulting in 1,094 cases among students, teachers, and school staff this school year.
The state defines a school outbreak as a situation where a contact tracer determines that two or more students or school staff were caught or spread COVID-19 in a classroom or school academic activities. These figures do not include students or staff who are believed to have been infected outside the school, or cases that cannot be confirmed as an outbreak in the school.
There are approximately 1.4 million public school students and teachers throughout the state. Although the teaching methods vary during the outbreak, some schools teach in person, some schools use a mixed format, and some are all remote.
Murphy recently announced that under the new social evacuation guidelines, most schools in New Jersey can move classroom desks by three feet instead of six feet.
The governor also stated that schools in the state will resume full-class face-to-face instruction in the next school year, and even parents who wish to choose this option due to their continued concern about COVID-19 will not allow regions to provide virtual learning. But Murphy clarified that if the health problems of students and teachers may put them at greater risk of serious coronavirus cases, they will have a virtual choice.
