Virus Outbreak Pennsylvania

Some protesters against Pennsylvania's coronavirus stay-at-home order said they fear ulterior motives by Gov. Tom Wolf and his administration.

The Department of Health report Saturday showed the second largest increase in the number of new cases in Cumberland County since the start of the coronavirus crisis - one day after Gov. Tom Wolf announced the county would be moving to yellow status on May 22.

According to the report, the county has recorded another 23 cases of COVID-19, bringing its overall total to 515.

The report also showed six additional deaths bringing the county total to 48.

In the past 14 days, 150 new cases have been reported in the county. That raises the county’s per capita rate for the 14-day period at 59.2 cases per 100,000 people in the county.

The state’s first metric for counties or regions to be considered for reducing stay-at-home restrictions is 50 new cases per 100,000 people over the prior 14 days in the county or region. Gov. Tom Wolf and Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine have said the metric is not the only stat they will use when considering which counties or regions will move from the red phase to the yellow phase.

The DOH reported there are 250 residents and 57 staff members in eight facilities in the county who have tested positive.

Saturday’s results showed 23 new positives out of 98 total tests for a rate of 23%.

Numbers from SCI Camp Hill were not updated as of noon Saturday. Its case count as of Friday stood at five.

The southcentral region saw 101 new cases in Saturday’s report with 70 of them coming from Cumberland, Dauphin and Franklin counties. Dauphin County added 26 new cases and Franklin County added 21.

Overall, the region saw 1,345 new cases over the previous 14-day period, putting its rate of cases per 100,000 people at 77.88.

Statewide, the Department of Health reported an additional 989 additional positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the statewide total to 61,611.

The state reported 61 additional deaths, bringing the statewide total to 4,342 deaths.

There have been 266,225 negative tests to date.

The DOH reports 13,257 resident cases of COVID-19 in long-term care facilities in the state and 2,075 cases among employees, for a total of 15,332 at 556 facilities in 44 counties. Out of the state’s total deaths, 3,043 have occurred in residents from nursing or personal care facilities.

The DOH said approximately 4,432 of total cases in the state are in health care workers.

The number of infections is thought to be far higher than the state’s confirmed case count because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick. There is no data on how many people have fully recovered.

For most people, the virus causes mild or moderate symptoms that clear up in a couple of weeks. Older adults and people with existing health problems are at higher risk of more severe illness, including pneumonia, or death.
