WARREN, Pa. – New COVID-19 cases in Warren County continued to spike with a single-day high 25 reported Wednesday, according to a Thursday update.
Of the 25 cases reported, 22 were confirmed and three probable, based on updated Pennsylvania Department of Health COVID Dashboard data update Thursday. That brings the county’s cumulative case count to 219 cases, 193 confirmed and 26 probable.
The November case count has now reached 148, more than double the total cases from March through October (71). The county is now averaging nearly six new cases per day for the month (5.92).
The Dashboard data still lists eight COVID patients currently hospitalized, with none requiring a ventilator or in the adult intensive care unit.
Warren County’s increase has mirrored a statewide rise in cases. The rapid rise has led the Wolf Administration to implement more mandates, requirements and advisories in an attempt to slow the spread.
The county still has just a single reported COVID-19 death.
The cumulative case count includes those cases the state considers “recovered.”
A case is considered recovered “if a case has not been reported as a death, and it is more than 30 days past the date of their first positive test (or onset of symptoms) then an individual is considered recovered,” according to the Department of Health.
