HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania's Delaware County is reporting its first two coronavirus-related deaths, the latest toll in the hard-hit southeastern part of the state.

The two deaths reported Wednesday come on top of seven already reported by the state Department of Health in Pennsylvania.

Delaware County says the victims were an 85-year-old man and an 86-year-old woman. Both were hospitalized.

Meanwhile, the state House of Representatives is resuming a voting session in Harrisburg to consider a package of coronavirus-related legislation, including $50 million in aid to help hospitals and emergency response teams afford masks, gloves and other personal protective gear.
