Five more Mainers have died and 210 new coronavirus cases have been reported across the state, Maine health officials said Saturday.

The number of coronavirus cases diagnosed in the past 14 days statewide is 2,797. This is an estimation of the current number of active cases in the state, as the Maine CDC is no longer tracking recoveries for all patients. That’s up from 2,793 on Friday.

Five new deaths were reported Saturday, raising the statewide death toll to 736. One of the deaths was a person in their 40s, two were in their 60s, one was in their 70s and one was in their 80s. Three were women and two were men; three were from Kennebec County, one was from Androscoggin County and one was from Piscataquis County.
