Pennsylvania Commonwealth microbiologist Kerry Pollard performs a manual extraction of the coronavirus inside the extraction lab at the Pennsylvania Department of Health Bureau of Laboratories.

Only two counties in the region didn't see an increase of COVID-19 cases, as new cases continue to pop up across the state and country.

Three new cases were reported Wednesday in Cumberland County, according to the latest update from the state Department of Health.

All three of those cases were confirmed cases. Comparing just the number of negative tests reported (80) and the number of confirmed cases, the county saw about 3.6% of its tests come back positive.

Across the region, York County was the only one with new cases in the double digits, with its caseload growing by 11. Dauphin County saw six new cases, while Franklin County saw five new cases and Adams County saw four new cases. Only Perry and Juniata counties did not have at least one new COVID-19 case.

York County also had two deaths associated with the disease, and one death was reported each in Franklin and Mifflin counties.

After reports of no patients on ventilators Tuesday, that number has bumped back up to one in the county, according to Wednesday's data. There are seven patients in the hospital with COVID-19 in the county, up two from Tuesday's report. Despite the increase, the 14-day hospitalization rate is currently at a new low at 4.9.

In data updated Tuesday evening, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 130,941 people have been fully vaccinated in Cumberland County, or 51.7% of the county's total population of 253,370. For the county's vaccine eligible population of people ages 12 and older, 130,932 people have been fully vaccinated, or 59.6% of that population. CDC data is current as of 6 a.m. on the day it is posted.

The CDC continues to track the delta variant and its prevalence in the United States.

The delta variant, first identified in India, has now spread to more than 60 countries and accounted for 30.4% of COVID cases in the United States between June 6 and June 19. Its rapid spread has led the CDC to upgrade it from a variant of interest to a variant of concern.

CDC data updated for a two-week period ending June 19 shows the delta variant as the third most prevalent variant (10.7%) of COVID-19 for Region 3 in the United States, comprised of Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.

The CDC's state table shows the delta variant in Pennsylvania at 3.4% of total cases for the same time period. Right now, the most dominant variant in Pennsylvania is the B.1.1.7 strain that was originally detected in the U.K. It is also known as the alpha variant.

Those numbers are expected to increase in the CDC's estimates for the two-week period ending July 3. The delta variant is expected become the dominant variant in the country at 51.7%. In Region 3 it is expected to rise to 31.4%.
