WARREN, Pa. – For the fourth time in December and the second time in as many days, Warren County had less than 20 new confirmed COVID-19 cases in a single day.
There were 14 new confirmed cases reported Thursday, according to Friday’s Pennsylvania Department of Health COVID-19 Dashboard data update. This comes on the heels of 16 confirmed new cases the previous day.
The other two dates under 20 were Dec. 5 and Dec. 3.
Three new deaths were included as part of the data update. The Dashboard now lists 10 COVID-related deaths for Warren County, though that number will continue to rise.
Warren County Coroner Melissa Zydonik confirmed to yourdailylocal.com Wednesday that there had been 21 COVID-related deaths in the county this month.
The cumulative case count is up to 978 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), 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.
