The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported on Wednesday that two more Maine residents have died from the effects of COVID-19 bringing the statewide death toll to 14.

Director Dr. Nirav Shah in his daily briefing offered condolences to the families of the victims, who he identified as a woman in her 80s from Waldo County and a man in his 80s from Cumberland County.

Shah said an additional 18 people have tested positive for the new coronavirus in the past 24 hours. That brings the total to 537 confirmed cases since March 12th. More than one-third of those people have recovered from the illness.

The Center is also continuing the process of pushing out personal protective equipment to health care facilities and other health care institutions across the state, Shah said.
