Most of the southcentral region saw modest increases in COVID-19 numbers, though the state's new cases again rose above 1,000 for the second day in a row.

The state Department of Health reported Thursday that there were 10 new cases of COVID-19 in Cumberland County. There were also 216 negative tests, and while that doesn't equate to the total number of tests, that does mean about 4.4% of the county's tests came back positive.

Cumberland County was one of five counties in the region to see increases in the double digits, but those Thursday's numbers were smaller increases than the previous two days.

York County saw 30 new cases of COVID-19, while Dauphin County had 21 cases. Lebanon County had 13 cases, and Blair County had 12.

Most of the rest of the region saw five or fewer new cases, if any increase at all, though Thursday's report also had an increase in deaths in more counties. Both Franklin County and Lebanon County each reported a single death.

The southcentral region's increase may be smaller than in previous days, but the department reported that the state, overall, saw 1,156 new cases.

Some of that, however, may be due to new testing in Philadelphia. The department said Philadelphia started reporting antigen-positive probable cases on Wednesday, with most of that data having been reported throughout September, not just in recent days. Thursday's report featured 205 probable cases from Philadelphia, out of the 258 total probable cases reported in the state.

The department also reported Allegheny County had 106 new cases. With Philadelphia's total of 347 cases and Allegheny's new cases, the two counties made up about a third of the total cases in the state.
