Good.  I was unclear what I was supposed to do with this data anyway.  A running total of cases/deaths doesn't help anyone much.  More of a "nice to know".

Statewide percent positivity for the week of Sept. 3 – Sept. 9 stood at 9.1%.

 

Between 11:59 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10 and 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12, there were 33 new deaths identified by the Pennsylvania death registry, reported for a total of 28,568 deaths attributed to COVID-19. County-specific information and a statewide map are available on the COVID-19 Data Dashboard.

For the 2021-2022 school year, the Department of Health is providing weekly updated case counts for two age groups: 0-4 capturing child care and early learning age children and 5-18 capturing kindergarten through high school age children. Case counts will be updated on Thursday afternoon for the previous week and cumulative since Aug. 16, 2021, by county of residence. The case counts presented are total case counts in these age groups and are not necessarily cases exposed in school, early learning or child care settings. The location of exposure cannot be determined but may have occurred in a variety of settings including the community, household/family, or the school setting.

A comparison of cases among school-aged children between 5-18 for the first week in September 2021 and 2020 shows the number of cases in the age group this year is nearly 10 times greater the same timeframe in 2020. Between Sept. 4 and Sept. 10, 2020, there were a total of 574 COVID-19 cases in the age group compared to Sept. 2 and Sept. 8, 2021, when there were 5,371 cases in the same age group.
