HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — More than a thousand additional coronavirus infections are being reported in Pennsylvania as health officials work to stifle a recent spike in cases.
The state Health Department said Tuesday the addition of 1,027 positive cases puts the state’s running tally at nearly 103,000. Pennsylvania’s two biggest cities accounted for about a third of the latest infections, with 139 reported in Allegheny County and Pittsburgh, and 168 in Philadelphia.
There were also 20 additional deaths statewide. That makes for 7,038 since the pandemic reached Pennsylvania earlier this year.
