The 2,219 cases reported Friday marked the highest ever reported in a single day in Pennsylvania; No. 2 was 1,989 back on April 9.

So far, India has recorded 78,64,811 confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 1,18,534 deaths.

Meanwhile, the average of daily deaths has increased from 7.6 to 8.4, and the average positivity rate went from 6.5% to 8.9%. In addition, the state has had 17,586 probable cases and 340 probable deaths.


There were also 13 COVID-19-related deaths confirmed Sunday, bringing the number of deaths related to the disease in North Carolina to 4,157 people.

The tallies, using data collected by the agency and information from the World Health Organisation (WHO), probably reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections.

For instance, some Wake County students will return to the classroom Monday, with schools reopening for PreK-3 students and those enrolled in regional special education programs. There have been 575 new cases during the last 14 days in Limerick. "The mitigation efforts in place now are essential to flattening the curve and saving lives". "If rates continue like this, we risk overwhelming our hospitals and having many more Michiganders die".


The county is still reporting six COVID-19 facility outbreaks, or what it calls "congregate care setting" outbreaks at two adult family homes, two assisted living facilities and two nursing homes.

About 2.21 million people in Pennsylvania have tested negative for the virus; in total, just more than 2.4 million people have been tested for the virus in the state.

The other case is a recent returnee who arrived from Ethiopia via Dubai and tested positive as a result of routine testing around day three.
