The average of COVID-19 cases confirmed in New Hampshire continues to edge up, although it may not be due to more disease but is probably a reflection of increased testing.

With 69 cases on Saturday and 77 on Sunday, the five-day moving average of confirmed COVID-19 in New Hampshire – a measure that smooths out day-to-day irregularities – hit a new high this weekend of 77. Officials said late last week that testing for the disease has roughly doubled in New Hampshire over the past week, meaning more cases are being found.
