New Jersey lowers Covid-19 death toll at long-term care facilities by 1,400

New Jersey on Tuesday lowered the number of reported coronavirus-related deaths at the state’s long-term care facilities by about 1,400, after health officials determined those residents had not received a lab-confirmed diagnosis for Covid-19 before they died.

The state will now report only lab-confirmed Covid-19 deaths occurring at long-term care facilities. As of Tuesday, that number was 4,295, down from nearly 5,700 on Monday.
