That's up 4,024 cases and 190 deaths since the last report on Wednesday. The newly reported deaths include 125 that were discovered through a review of vital records.

The state surpassed 400,000 total cases of COVID-19 last week, just less than nine months after the first cases were confirmed on March 10.
