The Department of Public Health released the latest community coronavirus data on Wednesday.
The table shows the number of cases for each community, the total number of people tested, the number of tests, and the rate of positive test results over the past two weeks for each city and town in Massachusetts.
There are now 11 communities in Massachusetts with an infection rate of more than 8 cases per 100,000 residents, which officials consider high-risk sites. These communities include Lynn, Chelsea, Revere, Everett, Saugus, Holyoke, Lawrence, Fall River, Salem, Granby and Hull.
Compared to the previous two-week period, 212 communities have either seen improvements or have no change in the number of their average daily cases, officials said.
State health officials reported 18 coronavirus deaths Wednesday, bringing the nationwide death toll to 8,547.
Officials also confirmed another 229 cases of COVID-19, for a total of at least 113,198. This is based on 15,693 new molecular tests reported Wednesday. 2,518 new antigen tests have also been reported.
There are currently 422 people hospitalized with the virus, including 64 patients in intensive care.
Officials on Tuesday released a color-coded map of the state showing where infection levels are highest. Red represents places where there are more than eight cases per 100,000 people, i.e. residents are at high risk; yellow represents between four and eight cases, or a moderate level of risk; green represents less than four cases per 100,000 inhabitants; and white represents less than five total cases reported over the past 14 days.
Gov. Charlie Baker said his administration had reached out to municipal leaders in communities with the strongest blows to come up with strategies to reduce infections. Baker said 318 communities in Massachusetts are at or below national standards for virus content, but added that there is still work to be done.
