For the 11th straight week, the state Department of Public Health released a breakdown of the total number of coronavirus cases in each Massachusetts city and town.
Health officials also released data showing which communities had the highest rates of positive COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people from Jan. 1 through June 24.
Below is a list of the 50 Massachusetts communities with the highest rates of positive COVID-19 cases right now:
Rate of confirmed COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people (Jan. 1-June 24, 2020)
Additionally, the Department of Public Health listed the number of people tested in each community and the percentage of positive tests. Statewide, 13% of those tested were positive for coronavirus, the third straight week in which that rate dropped by about a percentage point. Among cities and towns with more than 10 positive cases, Chelsea still had the highest percentage of positive tests with 35.88%, followed by Everett at 25.79% and Lynn at 25.55%.
Health officials note that these numbers reflect the number of people tested, not the number of tests performed, and that those people may have had more than one test.
