Pennsylvania moving closer to 90,000 coronavirus cases

Pennsylvania’s coronavirus cases statewide total is now 89,375 cases and 6,749 deaths ... Out of the new cases, 150 — or nearly 24% — are from Allegheny County.

“As the entire state is now in the green phase, we must remain committed to protecting against covid-19 by wearing a mask, practicing social distancing and avoiding large gatherings ...” state Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said.

According to the Department of Health, the most severe cases are seen in patients over the age of 65. More than half of the cases in Pennsylvania are seen in patients age 50 or older.

In nursing and personal care homes alone, there have been 17,908 cases in residents, 3,339 cases in employees and 4,592 deaths. These deaths account for 68% of the state’s total. About 709 nursing facilities have been affected by the virus.

Of the total, 6,780 coronavirus cases stem from health care workers.

1. 78% of which are considered recovered

meaning active cases in PA are about 19,800.

2. Good point,

by chance are you aware of any info from the state on the longevity of the virus from diagnosis to recovery?

Just curious.

3. It depends on severity and ranges from 2 weeks to never.

"If I have COVID-19, how long will it take until I feel better?

Those with a mild case of COVID-19 appear to recover within one to two weeks. For severe cases, recovery may take six weeks or more, and there may be lasting damage to the heart, kidneys, lungs and brain.

About 1% of infected people worldwide will die from the disease."

5. Some PA data

I didn't dig through all the data looking for recovery times specific to PA. I suspect they're not far off the national averages.

7. Agreed on that second link

Latest CDC US graph of new cases as of 6 July:



IMHO, opening to the extent that's been done was a mistake.

8. It seems to vary pretty widely

Sen Casey had it and said he only felt bad for a couple of days and didn't even know he'd had it until he was tested later for antibodies.

That's the biggest issue. No one really knows when the virus showed up and if people who had it, thought they just had the flu, treated themselves at home, got better and went on with their lives. I myself was sick at the beginning of March. I figured it was the flu, but who knows? All the symptoms except shortness of breath matched those of cv19.

Right now, the only hard data is from people who have/had cv19 and were tested to confirm it.

The DoH has a ton of data up at its website: https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/disease/coronavirus/Pages/Coronavirus.aspx
