The Pennsylvania health department has reported 75 new deaths from COVID-19. This brings the statewide death toll to more than 5,700. There are currently over 73,000 cases of the coronavirus in Pennsylvania.

In an effort to combat the spread of the virus, Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine says the state is ramping up contact tracing. The department is rolling out a plan in the southwest portion of the state. 

“We’ve also been working with the Penn State college of medicine to recruit medical students to do contact tracing and so far there are 46 medical students helping with this effort.”

Levine says she is also working with public health students from Temple University.
