It is according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. 20-million COVID-19 tests have now been administered in the state since March, and the positivity rate is 4.87-percent. There have been 18,135 deaths.

Over 1-million tests have been administered in the state in just the past week. There have been 47,262 new cases and 275 deaths during that period.
