On Friday, New Jersey reported 144 confirmed deaths and 10,707 confirmed positive tests, with more hospitalizations falling below 5,000 and the transmission rate still declining, indicating that the omicron variant wave continues to decrease.

The state's seven-day average for confirmed positive testing increased for the 11th day in a row on January 10, compared to a week ago, but still increased by 78% from a month ago.

On January 7, the case totals still remained above those recorded prior to the omicron surge. New Jersey had not reported a day with more than 7,000 confirmed positive tests.

The number of COVID-19 fatalities in New Jersey has increased by 1,573 people over the first 21 days of January.

For the week ending January 1, the omicron variant accounted for 95% of positive tests sampled (delta variation was second at 3.82%), up from 76.2% from the previous week, according to. For the week ending December 4, the omicron variant accounted for less than 1% of cases, while delta was the dominant variant at 99.2% of tests sampled.

As of Thursday night, there were 4,826 people in New Jersey's 71 hospitals.

The statewide transmission rate in New Jersey fell on January 1, but any rate below 1 indicates the outbreak is on the decline, with each new case resulting in less than one additional case.

The statewide positivity rate has also dropped from earlier this month, though it has dropped to 20%. The rate for tests conducted on Saturday, the most recent day available, was 23.56%, meaning more than 1 in 5 people who were tested had a positive result.

The state does not make daily breakdowns of the vaccine status of those who test positive, are hospitalized, or have died because of the virus. On Wednesday, health officials gave for the first time a greater look at breakthrough situations for vaccinated residents and those who have received boosters.

For the four-week period from December 6 to January 2, New Jersey reported 363,482 total COVID-19 cases, including 11,074 hospitalizations and 600 fatalities.

There were 113,774 breakthrough cases, which resulted in 883 hospitalizations and two fatalities.

There were 19,380 breakthrough cases which led to 161 hospitalizations and two fatalities among the 2.3 million people who had received booster injections.

The rates of infection and hospitalization for people with boosters are more than three times higher than for those who have only one primary vaccination, Murphy has stated.


The number of cases that have been reported in New Jersey has increased as more people are getting tested than ever before. On Friday, the state also reported 1,950 probable cases from rapid antigen testing at medical sites.

Murphy said Wednesday that the total number of reported cases is likely to be significant. We know many people who are testing positive through at-home tests arent reporting them.

Coronavirus deaths have also increased, including the last three days in New Jersey, with more than 100 fatalities in January.

Daily death reports do not reflect fatalities that occurred in the last 24 hours, and reporting is sometimes delayed for days or weeks as fatalities are investigated and certified.

All of New Jersey's 21 counties are still being listed as having high rates of coronavirus transmission, and The Agency is recommending that all people in high transmission counties wear masks in public settings regardless of their vaccination status.


As of Thursday night, 4,826 coronavirus patients were hospitalized across the country's 71 hospitals, which was 181 less than the previous night.

791 people were hospitalized, with 13 less being in intensive care, and 511 more being on ventilators.

According to Judith Persichilli, about half of those who were hospitalized with confirmed cases were admitted with COVID-19 as their primary health condition. The rest have COVID-19 as well as other co-existing medical conditions.

This comes as some critics have asked whether they are of people who have come into the hospital for an unrelated illness and then test positive for the virus, which leads to higher numbers of people.

As the primary cause of COVID-19, Persichilli says the virus is a contributing or co-morbid condition that might or could not worsen their primary diagnosis.

Murphy has said that surge rates in the state are lacking, and officials are focused on increasing them in the coming weeks.

Anyone 12 and older in the United States who has received their second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at least five months ago is eligible to get a booster dose.

Murphy has ordered in New Jersey and anyone else who has a job in high-risk congregate settings such as long-term care and correctional facilities. Those workers will no longer be eligible to opt out of vaccinations by undergoing weekly testing.
