Pennsylvania Recorded a Third Straight Day of Fewer than 400 Positive COVID Tests

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pennsylvania has recorded a third straight day of fewer than 400 positive coronavirus tests, according to Department of Health data.

That's the longest such stretch since new confirmed cases in the state began regularly exceeding that number l in late March.

Still, the number of people dying with the virus every day remains in the dozens.

Officials reported 33 additional deaths and 362 new confirmed cases on Tuesday. That brings the state’s totals to nearly 80,000 cases and 6,276 deaths since early March.

For most people, the virus causes mild or moderate symptoms that clear up in a couple of weeks. Older adults and people with existing health problems are at higher risk of more severe illness, including pneumonia, or death.
