The state Department of Health reported 97 new cases of COVID-19 and no additional deaths for Cumberland County Thursday. 

Thursday's report included 212 total test results, with 31 probable cases. Comparing just the number of negative tests (115) and confirmed positive tests (66), the county saw 36% of its tests come back positive.

The number of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 decreased to 58 in Thursday's report, down one from Wednesday's report, with 14 adults in intensive care and seven on ventilators. Six adult ICU beds remain available in the county and 30 of 89 ventilators in the county are in use.

The county's seven-day average of cases now sits at 79.71. Its 14-day per capita rate sits at 435.73, the highest rate since Feb. 11.

The southcentral region reported 836 cases Thursday, with York County reporting 196 cases, Franklin County 140, Dauphin County 82 and Adams County 78. York County reported six deaths and Franklin, Juniata and Lebanon counties two deaths each.

Vaccinations

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 every county in the state. 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 Wednesday evening, the CDC says Cumberland County has seen 57.7% of its total population of 253,370 become fully vaccinated. For the county's vaccine eligible population of people ages 12 and older, 66.6% have been fully vaccinated. 

In CDC estimates, the delta variant accounted for 99.1% of genetically sequenced coronavirus cases of COVID-19 in the United States for the one-week period ending Sept. 4, marking an increase from the 98.9% estimated for the week ending Aug. 28.

For Region 3 in the U.S. (comprised of Pennsylvania, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia), the delta variant is estimated to account for 99.3% of genetically sequenced coronavirus cases of COVID-19 for the one-week period ending Sept. 4, representing an increase from an estimated 99% for the one-week period ending Aug. 28.

In Pennsylvania, the delta variant accounted for 97.9% of cases for a four-week period ending Aug. 14.

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.
