WARREN, Pa. – It took Warren County six months to reach a total of 30 confirmed and probable COVID-19 cases. Through the first 14 days of December, the county is averaging more than 30 new confirmed cases per day.
According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s COVID-19 Dashboard data update Tuesday, there were 27 cases reported Monday. That brings the cumulative confirmed case count to 729 and the December total to 457.
Warren County is averaging 32.64 new confirmed case reports per day through the first half of the month. At the current pace, the county is set to gain more than 1,000 new confirmed cases this month (1,012).
The cumulative case count, up to 852 with probable cases (yourdailylocal.com is only reporting confirmed cases at this point because the Pennsylvania Department of Health, in an e-mail to the site last week, said it can’t track whether a probable case has become a confirmed case thus meaning a case may be double-counted if probable and confirmed cases are added together), 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.
