They were: three Salt Lake County men and one Tooele County man between 65-84, all of whom were hospitalized when they died; a Cache County man between 65-84 and Davis County man older than 85, both of whom were long-term care residents; and a Washington County man between 45-64, who was also hospitalized when he died.
Now 85,844 cases have been confirmed of 918,571 people tested since the start of the pandemic, a 9.3% positive rate. Hospitalizations in Utah during the outbreak now total 4,306.
About 63,300 cases are considered recovered from the disease after surviving the three-week point since their diagnoses, meaning more than 22,000 cases remain active.
