(WKBN) – The Pennsylvania Department of Health reported an additional 3,413 positive cases of COVID-19 and 193 new deaths.

That brings the statewide total to 902,650 cases and 23,319 deaths attributed to COVID-19.

There are 2,356 individuals hospitalized with COVID-19. Of that number, 491 patients are in the intensive care unit with COVID-19. Most of the patients hospitalized are ages 65 or older, and most of the deaths have occurred in patients 65 or older. More data is available here.

The trend in the 14-day moving average number of hospitalized patients per day has increased by nearly 2,300 since the end of September.

Statewide percent positivity for the week of February 5 – February 11 stood at 8.0%.

County-specific information and a statewide map are available on the COVID-19 Data Dashboard.

There are 105,497 individuals who have a positive viral antigen test and are considered probable cases and 637 individuals who have a positive serology test and either COVID-19 symptoms or a high-risk exposure. 

There are 3,791,021 individuals who have tested negative to date.

In licensed nursing and personal care homes, there are 65,713 resident cases of COVID-1,9 and 12,729 cases among employees, for a total of 78,442 cases at 1,556 distinct facilities. Out of total deaths reported to PA-NEDSS, 12,118 have occurred in residents from nursing or personal care facilities. A county breakdown can be found here. 

Note that the number of deaths reported to NEDSS is not exactly the same as the COVID-19 related deaths reported by the death registry. The number of deaths among nursing and personal care home residents and employees is taken from the PA-NEDSS death data, as this information is not available in the death registry data.

Approximately 24,257 of the total cases are among health care workers.
