Three new COVID Cases are reported in area

There were three new cases of COVID-19 and no new deaths reported for Warren County among Friday’s data.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health announced a total count of 2,198 cases, up three from Thursday, and 98 COVID-related deaths in the county.

Of the 2,198, 1,776 are confirmed and 422 are probables.

In the first five days of March, the department announced 38 new cases in the county, with more than half — 20 — falling on Tuesday, March 2.

There was one less COVID-positive patient (down from two to one) at Warren General Hospital on Friday. That patient was not on a ventilator nor in intensive care.

State-wide, there have been 811,019 confirmed cases, another 133,177 probables, and 24,262 deaths.

The number of county residents who have received both doses of a COVID vaccine continues to rise, but slowly. There were 2,638 residents who had been fully vaccinated according to Friday’s report. That is an increase of 33 over Thursday’s report.

The number of residents receiving their first dose also continues to rise. On Friday, the number was 2,362 — up 41 from Thursday.

Because the number of people who are partially vaccinated drops when some of those people receive their second doses, the number of new first-time patients was actually 74.

The department acknowledges that there are delays in reporting vaccinations.
