WARREN, Pa – Warren County hit a new single day record for positive COVID-19 cases with four new confirmed cases Friday.
UPDATE: Two more confirmed positive cases were added to Warren County’s cumulative case count Saturday. That brings the total to 42 confirmed and 10 probable, with six new confirmed cases in two days.
In its daily announcement, the Pennsylvania Department of Health listed Warren County with 40 confirmed and 10 probable cases. The 40 confirmed represents an increase of four confirmed cases over the 36 the county reached Tuesday.
Of the 50 cumulative cases, 22 have come in September or October. After an early September spike, the county went nearly two weeks without a new case. With the four announced Friday, there have been eight new cases in the last two weeks.
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 six 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.
