HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania is reporting its highest one-day total of confirmed coronavirus cases since May, breaking 1,000, although some of the test results, 175, were reported on a delay.

The state Department of Health on Friday also reported another 32 coronavirus-related deaths bringing the state’s total to 6,880. As more people are tested, an increase in the raw number of positive tests is to be expected.
But if the virus is being brought under control, then the percentage of positive results should be coming down. Pennsylvania’s seven-day positivity rate is 5.3%, according to an Associated Press analysis, and has grown from 4.4% two weeks ago.
