The last day in March saw Washington state coronavirus deaths climb to 247, according to a Department of Health database that came back online late April 1.

This was an increase of 52 fatalities since March 28, when the database froze up due to too much information coming in. The state's death total increased 87% in the seven days between March 25 and April 1.

Confirmed infections increased to 5,984, a 22% hike since Saturday, with cases in all but five counties. Pacific and Wahkiakum remain without officials cases. However, 672 of the cases counted by the state aren't attributed to a specific county.
