For the second day in a row, Cumberland County's number of new COVID-19 cases rose by double digits, along with four other counties in the region.

The state Department of Health reported Wednesday that there were 12 new coronavirus cases in Cumberland County. Though higher than has been normal for the county, it's a drop from Tuesday's rise of 22 new cases.

Cumberland County was again among the same counties that saw spikes in Tuesday's report. York County saw 15 new cases — a drop from the 46 new cases reported Tuesday — while Dauphin County saw the highest increase with 20 new cases Wednesday.

In the past 14 days, 146 new cases have been reported in Cumberland County, giving the county a per capita rate of 57.6 per 100,000 people for the 14-day period.

Franklin County continues its above average rise in cases with 13 new cases reported Wednesday. Just a few weeks ago, the county had reported only one to three new cases a day.

Blair County is also rising faster than it has been, with 10 new cases Wednesday.

There were also three deaths reported in the region, one in Dauphin County and two in York County. They are among the 25 new deaths that were reported across the state.

Of the cases statewide, the department only reported 631 new positives — the lowest in weeks — though it added the number does not include data from Philadelphia, which was not received by the department Tuesday. The Philadelphia and Pittsburgh regions had been accounting for more than 50% of the state's positives in the last two weeks.
