Two people with COVID-19 have died in Maine, and 19 new cases have been reported, according to data available on the state CDC website Sunday morning.

That brings the cumulative total cases in the state to 3,539 and the total deaths to 114. Two-thousand nine-hundred ninety four people have recovered from the disease, leaving 431 active cases.

Sixteen people are currently hospitalized with COVID-19, seven of whom are in critical care and four on ventilators.

In a press release Sunday morning, a Maine CDC spokesperson said the person whose death was reported Saturday and the two on Sunday were a woman in her 90s from Penobscot County and a man in his 70s and woman in her 80s, both from Cumberland County.
