A day later The mayor of Newark announced that it is asking residents of the state’s largest city to stay home for 10 days Starting the day before Thanksgiving, Govt. Bill Murphy No new restrictions were announced Saturday against the second wave.

But Murphy, Echoes the predictions of the great federal epidemiologist Dr. Anthony Fucci, Warned that the next few months will be difficult. Although New Jersey has significantly increased trials, the governor said the numbers will “undoubtedly get worse” as more people move in due to the cold weather.

Authorities continued to urge residents to wear masks, observe social distance, wash their hands and keep the string of upcoming holiday celebrations short.

“Numbers speak for themselves. Take this seriously. Wear a mask. Social distance. Avoid large gatherings.” Murphy said on Twitter.

In a bright note, officials announced Friday that New Jersey could Pfizer can get up to 160,000 doses of corona virus vaccine If the company wins emergency application approval from the federal government by Christmas.

The statewide seven-day average for new positive tests rose to 3,933, up 23% from a week ago and 278% a month.

Seven day cases are now higher than the first waves of the epidemic, however the comparison is disappointing because the government carried out less than 12,000 tests a day and the outbreak was calculated.

The latest statewide exchange rate dropped to 1.38. Any number above 1 means that the explosion is constantly expanding. New Jersey has been above that mark since the beginning of September.

At least 100 new cases were reported in 21 counties led by Essex (536), Camden (435) and Bergen (427) districts on Saturday.

The government has not announced when the 34 newly announced deaths occurred.

Updates are coming as corona virus cases, deaths and hospitalizations Rise in America, And waiting times and The long lines at the test sites have increased dramatically.

Murphy had previously said that New Jersey figures were increasing because people were tired of observing viral controls such as wearing masks, and because the weather was getting colder, especially indoors.

To combat the spread, Murphy is there Ordered indoor bars and restaurants Closes daily at 10pm in New Jersey Canceled Interstate Indoor Game Up to high school level. Indoor meetings are now limited to 10 people, down from 25, and outdoor meetings will be limited to 150, starting on Monday, from 500.
