Cape Cod Coronavirus Update: 708 Cases on April 23

There are now 708 confirmed cases of Coronavirus/COVID-19 on Cape Cod according to the state of Massachusetts numbers that are reported daily. With an increase of 30 new cases in one day, the county is still not seeing a cresting of this wave. The increase, in my opinion, is due to the fact that we are now testing a lot more people than we have been. According to the state report, 14,614 tests were turned in today, which is the highest number of tests completed on any day since we started testing. The second highest number of tests returned in one day before today was 8,750 tests on April 16, 2020.
The weekly numbers for each town on the Cape are reported every Wednesday by the state and tend to be more reliable than some of the reports released by the town health departments. In our table below, find numbers for the number of reported cases for each town. For some columns, there are state numbers (*s#) and town numbers (*t#) and in some cases, there are numbers for the number of people who have recovered from the virus and the number of deaths. Please note, we only are the numbers that the town themselves report, which is inconsistent at this point.
