There were 178 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases reported in Montana on Wednesday, and the statewide death toll since the start of the pandemic is 1,489, according to data collected by MTN News.
(Note: The increase in the number of COVID-19-related deaths reported today is due to ongoing death registry reconciliation efforts, including nine deaths reported in Flathead County, state health service officials said. All deaths reported today occurred between October 2020 and March 2021.)
The number of active cases in the state is currently 932, according to MTN News, and there are a total of 105,789 cases of the virus in Montana. Of the total cases, 103,368 have been recovered.

The numbers reported by MTN reflect the latest data from the COVID website in Montana, along with additional data received from the county’s health departments.
Note: As new COVID-19 cases persist in Montana, the disparity between state data from DPHHS and local data from regional health departments also persists.
MTN has decided to use a combination of these sources to deliver more accurate information across all media platforms. In our view, this is a more faithful representation of the situation in Montana.
Local county health departments can be warned of cases prior to Montana DPHHS. Since those countries share that information with the public, MTN believes this should be reflected in our reporting. Using that local data means there will be times when MTN coronavirus data is not in line with the status report.
