A number of counties in the southcentral region saw a double-digit increase in their COVID-19 cases in Wednesday's report from the state Department of Health, which reported an overall increase in the state of 849 cases.

The department on Tuesday had credited yesterday's spike of 995 cases to delays in reporting from the Philadelphia Health Department, though cases still remain high in Wednesday's tally. The department on Wednesday said that with the latest numbers, Allegheny County increased by 230 cases overnight, and Philadelphia County had 90 cases overnight.

Some of those jumps are seen in the region, with Cumberland County seeing 10 new COVID-19 cases, which is slightly higher than average for the county.

For the second day in a row, Franklin County has seen an unusual spike in cases. Whereas the county had only been seeing one to three new cases a day, the county on Tuesday had 12 new cases, and on Wednesday it has 14 new cases.

The largest spikes, however, remain located in Dauphin and York counties. Dauphin County had only 16 new cases Wednesday, but York County saw 38 new cases, down slightly from the 41 new cases in Tuesday's report.

Dauphin and York counties are again the only counties to see an uptick in the number of deaths, with Dauphin County rising by one to 143 deaths and York County rising by two to 57 deaths.

Both counties saw increases in the number of deaths in long-term care facilities, so those deaths could be located in nursing homes.
