Area averaging less than one COVID case a day

Through half of June, there has been an average of less than one new case of COVID-19 per day in the county.

At the start of the month, the Pennsylvania Department of Health was reporting a total of 2,622 cases in Warren County.

As of Friday, June 18, that number is up to 2,638 – up 16.

Of the total, 2,025 are confirmed and 613 are probables.

There were three new cases this week, with two reported Thursday and one reported Tuesday. According to the department, there were no COVID-positive patients at Warren General Hospital.

The number of COVID-related deaths of county residents remains at 103, unchanged since late May.

As the number of new cases remains low, county residents continue to be vaccinated.

As of Friday, 13,072 county residents were fully covered (either both doses of Moderna or Pfizer, or the single dose of Johnson and Johnson) and 3,372 were partially covered.

In the past week, just under 400 people became fully vaccinated.

The number of partially vaccinated residents dropped by a little over 200 in the last week, meaning there are still people in the county receiving their first vaccines.

The vaccination total reflects about 42 percent of the total population or about 52 percent of the adult population of the county.
