Bio­gen’s Covid-19 tal­ly breaks past the 100 mark, feed­ing the state to­tal as the con­ta­gion wreaks hav­oc

The num­ber of new Covid-19 cas­es con­tin­ues to swell in Mass­a­chu­setts, with the Bio­gen out­break pro­vid­ing the bulk of the new cas­es as health of­fi­cials brace for a wave of sick pa­tients in the weeks to come.

The lat­est tal­ly from the state on Sun­day evening was 164 cas­es — 45  con­firmed and the rest pre­sump­tive af­ter state test­ing de­tect­ed the coro­n­avirus. That’s an in­crease of 56 over the last 3 days — adding 26 in one day — with 108 cas­es now linked to Bio­gen staffers or their close con­tacts.
