PA seeing uptick of COVID-19 cases, weeks after caseload had been falling

Harrisburg, PA (AP) — Pennsylvania is seeing an uptick in the number of confirmed new cases of COVID-19, more than three months after the pandemic first began to spread in the state.

The Health Department said Thursday there were 600 new positive cases and 22 deaths.

The state’s caseload had been steadily falling, but more recently has plateaued and now appears to be inching up.

The agency says nearly 82,000 Pennsylvanians have been confirmed to have the disease. There have been 6,579 deaths.
