NJ hits high water mark: nearly 100K cases and 5,368 deaths, 4K new cases

As the epicenter of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) coronavirus in Queens New York City begins its long downward descent in hospitalizations, cases and deaths, New Jersey finds itself on the other side of the curve.

Governor Phil Murphy today announced the bad news nearing 100,000 cases and deaths now at 5,368 with an additional 4,000 cases identified.

As much of the United States sees a flattening and descending figures, New Jersey finds itself alone with an apex yet topping out.

Hoboken resides in a relative sea of tranquility in comparison to Hudson County and the rest of the state. Only two additional cases were officially added bringing the Mile Square City's tally to 404.

Hudson County now finds itself in the number two position (see below) behind Bergen County in overall cases with one of the highest concentrations of infection.

Governor Phil Murphy anticipates the near lockdown status will continue stating, "We can't ease up one bit on our social distancing. We need to see more progress and more slowing."
