An update from Dr. Levine about a spike the death count and social distancing

April 30, 2020

Pennsylvania’s health department added close to 500 new COVD-19 deaths to the state’s toll Thursday, April 30, bringing the total to nearly 2,200.

Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine says that’s not because of a surge in deaths. Today’s update includes data matched from an electronic reporting system over the last 10 days. 

“It’s important to remember with this reconciliation in data analysis that this is in regard to reporting of cases of deaths that have taken days or a week or more to occur. So, it is not one day’s reporting,” said Levine. 

The state reported just over 1,100 new cases of the virus, bringing the statewide total to more than 44,000.
