HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania produced another day of more than 1,000 new confirmed coronavirus cases, as the state fights to tamp down rising case counts. The Department of Health on Friday reported more than 1,213 additional confirmed cases. That's the most in a single-day report since May. It also reported 22 new deaths.

In July, Pennsylvania’s 14-day rate of new cases per 100,000 residents has risen by more than 50%, from below 60 to above 90. The seven-day positivity rate has gradually increased in July, from about 4.5% to 5.8%.

Deaths have declined from June to July, although hospitalizations are on the rise in July, according to state data.
