CONCORD – The state announced 56 new positive test results for COVID-19 bringing the total to 314 in New Hampshire on Monday.

The state also released a town-by-town map of where the patients live and said there would be new age and gender information, although it was unclear where that data was posted. InDepthNH.org has requested an easier to read map.

The new cases are 35 adult females and 21 adult males. The patients reside in Rockingham (16), Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (5), Strafford (5), Grafton (5), Merrimack (4), and Belknap (3) counties, and in the cities of Nashua (12) and Manchester (6).

NH Department of Health and Human Services data:

Four of the new cases were hospitalized for their illness; thus far, 45 patients of the 314 positive cases (14%) have been hospitalized. Thirty-four of the new cases have no identified risk factors.

Community-based transmission continues to increase in the State and has been identified in all counties with cases. Most of the remaining cases have either had travel to domestic or international locations or have had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis.

DHHS said new data sets are available. Effective immediately, the NH DHHS COVID-19 updates will include a map of positive cases on a town-by-town level. In addition, new data sets featured on NH.gov/COVID19 website include age and gender breakdowns.
