There were 178 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases reported in Montana on Wednesday, and the statewide death toll since the pandemic began is 1,489, according to data compiled by MTN News.
(Note: The increase in the number of COVID-19 related deaths being reported today is due to ongoing reconciliation efforts of death records, including nine deaths reported in Flathead County, state health department officials said. All deaths reported today occurred between October 2020 and March 2021.)
The number of active cases in the state is currently 932, according to MTN News, and there has been a cumulative total of 105,789 cases of the virus in Montana. Of the total cases, 103,368 have recovered.
There are currently 34 people hospitalized for treatment of the virus, and the cumulative number of hospitalizations is 4,827.

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 new COVID-19 cases continue in Montana, the disparity between state data from DPHHS and local data from county health departments also continues.
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.
