The number of newly confirmed coronavirus deaths rose by 86 on Wednesday while the number of newly confirmed cases of COVID-19 increased by more than 5,200.

The new deaths pushed the state’s confirmed COVID-19 death toll to 13,082 and its confirmed caseload since the start of the pandemic to more than 427,000.

The true number of cases is likely higher because studies suggest some people can be infected and not feel sick.

There were 2,200 people reported hospitalized Wednesday because of confirmed cases of COVID-19, with about 460 in intensive care units.

The average age of those hospitalized was 73. There were an estimated more than 90,000 current active cases of COVID-19 in the state.

The number of probable or confirmed COVID-19 deaths reported in long-term care facilities rose to 7,666.
