This illustration, created at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reveals ultrastructural morphology exhibited by coronaviruses. Note the spikes that adorn the outer surface of the virus, which impart the look of a corona surrounding the virion, when viewed electron microscopically. A novel coronavirus, named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), was identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China in 2019. The illness caused by this virus has been named coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

CONCORD – The state Department of Health and Human Services announced 31 new positive test results for COVID-19.

There have now been 6,054 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in New Hampshire. Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates.

 Of those with complete information, there are six individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 58% being female and 42% being male. The new cases reside in Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (8), Rockingham (3), Merrimack (2), Strafford (2), Carroll (1), and Cheshire (1) counties, and in the cities of Nashua (8) and Manchester (1).
