Pennsylvania is close to reaching a grim milestone of 30,000 people dying from COVID-19 since the Pandemic began. We didn’t hit that number yet, but we’re on track to hitting it soon.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health dashboard reported 3,907 new cases Statewide on Sunday. That brings the 7-day average down a little bit from it’s 8 month high that was hit on Saturday. No new death data has been reported this weekend, but the Commonwealth currently stands at 29,907 people who have died from the Virus. The number of Statewide hospitalizations from the Virus did creep down on Sunday.
As for new cases in our 10 County viewing area on Sunday, 283 new cases were reported. Centre, Cambria, and Huntingdon Counties are leading the way with numbers in the low 40’s. Somerset County is now just 9 cases away from hitting their 10,000 mark for the Pandemic. Cameron County’s new case total for Sunday is one of their largest 1-day marks.
All Counties in Pennsylvania are continuing to have that “High Rate” of Community Transmission, according to the CDC.
