The Washington government revealed that the state’s COVID-19-related death toll has reached 1,370, after announcing three more deaths since Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Washington State Department of Health Website, there have been 1,088 new known cases of coronavirus reported in the last 24 hours — the highest single-day uptick in Washington State.

“These new numbers are not just from one day — data processing issues over the holiday weekend caused a backlog. Over the past four days, the average daily case total has been 711,” reported the Joint Information Center of the Washington State Coronavirus Response.

This brings the state’s confirmed total to 36,985, with 222 hospitalizations, 37 of which are intubated.

Currently, 592,271 tests (approximately 94% of all coronavirus tests in the state) have turned up negative.

The United States’ total death toll now sits at 3,059,428.
