HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — More than 70,000 Pennsylvanians have been infected with the coronavirus, the state Health Department said Thursday, and 108 more state residents have died from it.

The agency added 625 more positive cases, and said the additional deaths raised the total number of fatalities to 5,373.

LOCAL CASES as of May 28, 2020 Cases Deaths

Lawrence County: Cases=74, Deaths=8

Mercer County: Cases=106, Deaths=4

Nursing homes and personal care homes have been particularly hard-hit, with more than 15,000 positive cases among residents and more than 2,500 among workers at 600 facilities.

Pennsylvania is in the midst of gradual reopening, with counties moving into less restrictive categories of business and personal activity.

The number of infections is thought to be far higher than the confirmed count because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected without feeling sick.
