Aug.23 -- The Covid-19 vaccine made by Pfizer and BioNTech was granted a full approval by U.S. regulators. Bloomberg's Riley Griffin reports on "Bloomberg Markets."

The state Department of Health reported 37 new cases of COVID-19 for Cumberland County Monday.

Monday's report included 167 total test results, with 3 probable cases. Comparing just the number of negative tests (130) and confirmed positive tests (34), the county saw 20.7% of its tests come back positive.

The number of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 increased to 30 in Monday's report, an increase of one from Sunday, with nine in intensive care and five on ventilators.  

Cumberland County dropped slightly in percent positivity and showed an increase in incidence rate per 100,000 people in the Health Department's weekly update to its Early Warning Monitoring System Dashboard Friday. Cumberland County saw its percent positivity drop to 7.6% for the week of Aug. 13-19, down from 7.7% the previous week. The incidence rate per 100,000 people increased to 88.8, up from 69.9 the previous week.

The Health Department reported 1,846 additional positive cases of COVID-19 for the state Monday.

The southcentral region reported 323 cases Monday, with seven counties in double digits. York County reported 93 cases, Dauphin County 49, and Franklin County 33.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention labels Cumberland County as having "high" transmission of the virus — the highest level, which is the transmission level for Adams, Bedford, Blair, Dauphin, Franklin, Fulton, Lebanon, Perry and York counties in the region. Community transmission is determined by the number of new cases per 100,000 people in the last seven days and the positivity rate over the last seven days, so the classification could vary from day to day based on those numbers.

In data updated Sunday evening, the CDC says 56% of Cumberland County's total population of 253,370 has been fully vaccinated. For the county's vaccine eligible population of people ages 12 and older, 64.6% have been fully vaccinated. CDC data is current as of 6 a.m. on the day it is posted.

In CDC estimates, the delta variant accounted for 83.4% of genetically sequenced coronavirus cases of COVID-19 in the United States for the two-week period ending Aug. 7, marking an increase from the 81.7% estimated for the week ending July 31.

For Region 3 in the U.S. (which includes Pennsylvania, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia), the delta variant is estimated to account for 86.5% of genetically sequenced coronavirus cases of COVID-19, representing an increase from an estimated 84.2% for the two-week period ending July 31.

The delta variant is a mutated coronavirus that spreads more easily than other versions. It was first detected in India but now has been identified around the world.
