WARREN, Pa. – The Pennsylvania Department of Health COVID-19 dashboard data changed for Warren County again Monday.
This time, however, the change did not result in any additional cases being added to the county’s cumulative total of 56. The only changes were in the number of confirmed and probable cases, and the distribution of cases by day.
As of 10 p.m. Sunday night, Warren County was listed on the dashboard as having 44 confirmed and 12 probable cases. After Monday’s daily announcement of new cases, the dashboard data had been changed to show 45 confirmed and 11 probable.
The Department of Health was unavailable for comment Monday afternoon.
The daily count totals from Thursday through Sunday were also changed. On Sunday, the dashboard showed four cases each for Thursday and Friday, plus two more Saturday. On Monday, the chart listed four cases for Thursday and three each for Friday and Saturday.
The cumulative case count stretches back to March 24, when the county’s first positive case was announced. No additional cases were reported until May 12. There were two cases in May, four in June, seven in July, 14 in August, 16 in September and 12 so far in October.
The county has one reported 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.
