(EDITOR'S NOTE: For reporting purposes, case counts are actually tabulated the prior day and those tabulations are often adjusted up or down. This is due to Maine CDC investigators determining which actual new or current cases may not qualify to be classified as COVID-19 cases, especially when it comes to probable cases. Some days are actually adjusted upward as was the case for several days last week, while cases are more often revised downward upon subsequent investigations. Therefore, The Maine Edge uses adjusted net figures first when determining actual daily variances instead of the number of newly reported cases that may end up not qualifying or being adjusted. In the case of a prior day's figures being revised upward, both will be included since the prior day was underreported.)

DAILY UPDATE: Current information as of 2 p.m. Monday, Nov. 23 with CDC data as of 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22

AUGUSTA - After a 400-plus rise over the weekend that saw total cases related to COVID-19 top the 10,000-mark on Saturday, another 186 new cases were reported on Monday to bring Maine's total case count to 10,544. While the increase on Sunday was the seventh day so far this month that new cases have exceeded 200, it was below the single-day record set Nov. 12 when 247 new cases were reported. In all, cases have risen by 4,136 - or nearly 65 percent - since Oct. 28, the day before triple-digit increases in new daily cases began according to the latest data from the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Maine CDC).
