Posted

Here is a look at the numbers by county in Pennsylvania according to numbers released Sunday by the state Department of Health, including the number of cases and day-over-day change, negative tests and day-over-day change, and number of deaths with the day-over-day change.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health today confirmed 730 additional positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the statewide total to 67,713 in all 67 counties.

That’s a little less than a 1.1 percent increase from the previous day.

The state also reported only 28 new deaths, for 5,124 total, in 54 counties. That’s one of the lowest numbers of new deaths reported in recent weeks.

The highest one-day increase in total cases statewide remains 1,989 on April 9.

We are listing the county numbers by their Department of Health regions, to group them in the way the state is looking at them for possible reductions in restrictions from the coronavirus.
