A steady rise in active cases of COVID-19 this week in North Dakota slowed on Friday, and state health officials reported no new coronavirus-related deaths for a seventh straight day.

The Health Department reported 165 new COVID-19 cases from 5,925 tests processed Thursday, and calculated a positivity rate of 3.72%.

Active cases rose by only six, to 1,227. However, they increased by 11 in Burleigh-Morton counties, to 157. That's double the amount of just 10 days ago. Cass County, home to Fargo, remained a hot spot, with 605 active cases, including 79 new cases confirmed Thursday.

Since the onset of the pandemic in March 2020, there have been 103,460 confirmed COVID-19 cases in North Dakota, with 100,767 recoveries, 1,466 deaths and 3,946 hospitalizations. Twenty-three virus patients remained in a hospital on Friday, up two from the previous day.

About 425,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been distributed in North Dakota, to about 243,000 people. Two of the three available vaccines require two doses, weeks apart.
