SALEM (CBS) – One Massachusetts hospital is making COVID progress, getting close to a major milestone.

Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll initially tweeted there were zero COVID patients at Salem Hospital, adding that it marked the first time since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic there were no COVID patients at the hospital.

“Let’s keep this trend going by getting vaccinated today!” she said in the tweet..

Later Monday afternoon, the hospital updated that a computer glitch led to that report. Instead, there are eight COVID patients in the hospital Monday.

“A number to celebrate, but not the same as zero. Let’s all keep wearing masks & maintaining distance indoors & in crowds & we can get there!” the hospital said.

Overall, Massachusetts reported 786 new COVID cases and four additional deaths on Sunday.
