November 11, 2020

RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina on Wednesday reported its highest single-day increase in coronavirus cases, with 3,119 people testing positive.

The state has now eclipsed 300,000 cases since the start of the pandemic.

Nearly 8% of tests came back positive, marking the highest positivity rate in more than a month.

“This is not the milestone we want to be hitting, particularly as we head into holidays where people want to come together,” said a statement from Mandy Cohen, secretary of the state Department of Health and Human Services.

North Carolina reported 38 deaths on Wednesday, bringing the confirmed total to 4,698.
