New COVID-19 cases hit record high in post-holiday spike

New daily infections of COVID-19 appear to be leveling off, but this weekend the state hit another record high with more than 6,400 new cases reported in a single day. It’s an apparent spike following the holidays, just as health officials warned.

On Monday, Gov. Phil Murphy said we’ll likely feel the impact of holiday gatherings and parties for at least the next several days. The spike has also pushed the coronavirus to the number one cause of death in the state.
