The state Department of Public Health says the latest figures push the statewide total of confirmed cases over 702,000 since the start of the pandemic.

Massachusetts’ death toll now stands at 17,841.

Officials say 565 people were hospitalized as of Thursday, and more than 140 of those were in intensive care. Just under 4.5 million of the state’s 7 million residents are now fully vaccinated.
