Cases of the Coronavirus continue to increase in the state. 218 confirmed and presumptive cases have been announced including a third case in Sandwich. Officials say that “the third person” had contact with the previous two people who have the virus.
Overall, officials say there are 21 people who have been hospitalized. 33 of the cases are from local transmissions.
The Governor has again told reporters that there is no plan being contemplated to “shelter in place.” The mayor of Cambridge has signed a letter calling for that. It is signed by a group of several lawmakers.
The Governor warned residents that they need to get their information about this issue from real news and not “a friend’s friend neighbor.”
"Without question, we are likely to have some very tough days ahead of us as we are still at the beginning of the battle against this virus," Baker said. "But we continue to have great faith and confidence that we will get through this by pulling together, caring for one another, and doing what's right for our neighbors and our communities, because that is who we are."
