Concord, NH - Today marks 100 days since the first confirmed case of COVID-19 was announced in New Hampshire on March 2, 2020. In the 100 days since, the State has taken historic action to protect the health and well-being of New Hampshire citizens.

“I would like to thank the people of New Hampshire for standing with us since the first confirmed case of COVID-19 was announced in New Hampshire 100 days ago,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “The public health crisis we are facing has presented challenges of an unprecedented nature - but at each step along the way, our team has stepped up and gotten the job done.”
 
“It’s hard to believe that in just 100 days, we’ve gone from having little PPE to regularly securing planeloads filled with thousands and thousands of pounds of the equipment,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “We took immediate action to expand unemployment benefits, have set the gold standard for the rest of the country with remote learning, have allocated hundreds of millions of dollars in relief funds, and have made tests available to any New Hampshire resident who wants one. There’s still more work to be done, but our team has moved mountains in the past 100 days.”
 
To date, there have been 5,132 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Hampshire, with 88,647 tests performed. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, less than 5% of New Hampshire’s hospital beds have been occupied by COVID-19 patients, on average.
