https://www.health.pa.gov From fewer cases to more, from green to blue to yellow to orange.

150 Pennsylvanians have died as a result of COVID-19.

That’s according to Sunday’s data released by the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

That data indicated an additional 1,493 cases bringing the state-wide total to 11,510. That includes the second and third cases in Forest County from over the weekend. Erie is at 19 cases, and Warren County has had just one positive test confirmed.

A total of 66,261 patients have tested negative.

Looking at the cases by age range, less than one percent of cases have been found in people ages 0-4 and 5-12, respectively.

One percent of cases have been found in the 13-18 age range and eight percent in the 19-24 group.

COVID-19 continues to infect adults at much higher rates.

42 percent of cases have been found in individuals between 25 and 49 years of age with 29 percent in the 50 to 64 range and 20 percent in those 65 and older.

But looking at hospitalizations by age range, nearly 80 percent of hospitalizations have been for individuals 50 and older — 28 percent for those 50-64 and 51 percent in the 65 and older group.
