WARREN, Pa. – Warren County’s cumulative confirmed COVID-19 case count increased to over 1,000 Monday.
There were 67 new confirmed cases reported Monday, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s COVID-19 Dashboard data updated Tuesday. That brings the county’s cumulative confirmed case count to 1,031.
Warren County had 60 confirmed cases at the end of October and 272 entering December. With 759 confirmed cases so far this month, Warren County is averaging more than 36 new confirmed cases per day (36.14).
The Dashboard update also added four more COVID-related deaths to the county’s total. While the Dashboard now lists 19 COVID-related deaths, Warren County Coroner Melissa Zydonik confirmed to yourdailylocal.com that, as of Dec. 16, there have been 21 COVID-related deaths in the county this month.
The cumulative case count is up to 1,223 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, 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) and 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.
Of the 1,223 cumulative combined cases, 1,060 have been reported in the last 30 days.
