There were 1,096 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases reported in Montana on Wednesday, and the statewide death toll reached 739, according to data compiled by MTN News during a 24-hour period.

There are currently 15,622 active cases in the state, and there has been a cumulative total of 64,811 cases of the virus in Montana, MTN News reports. Of the total cases, 48,450 have recovered.

There are currently 478 people hospitalized, and the cumulative number of total hospitalizations is 2,733.

The number of tests performed in the state has reached 663,581, an increase of 2,686 during the previous 24-hour reporting period.

The numbers reported by MTN reflect the latest data from the Montana COVID website, along with supplemental data received from county health departments.

Note: As COVID-19 cases escalate in Montana, the disparity between state data from DPHHS and local data from county health departments continues to grow.

MTN has decided to use a combination of these sources to deliver more accurate information across all media platforms. We feel this is a more truthful accounting of the situation in Montana.

Local county health departments may be alerted to cases before Montana DPHHS. As those counties share that information with the public, MTN feels it should be reflected in our reporting. Using that local data means there will be times when MTN coronavirus data does not align with the state report.
