Breakdown for Tuesday, May 5: Southeast sees massive increase in coronavirus deaths

Posted

Here is a look at the numbers by county in Pennsylvania according to numbers released Tuesday 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 reported 554 new deaths, bring the total to 3,012. It said those deaths occurred over several weeks and the increase in one day was a result of reconciling its data systems.

One region, the southeast, accounted for a huge chunk of the newly reported deaths.

There were 865 additional positive cases of COVID-19 reported statewide Tuesday, bringing the total to 50,957 in all 67 counties.

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.
