Since we last reported that there were still just 2 cases of coronavirus in Pennsylvania, 2 more cases have been confirmed.

Both of these new cases are from Montgomery County, Gov. Tom Wolf announced Saturday evening.

“These new cases bring our total of presumptive positive cases to four in Pennsylvania,” Gov. Wolf said. “Even with these new cases, I want to reassure Pennsylvanians that the commonwealth is prepared and responding appropriately and swiftly so that information and resources are available.”

This announcement came just hours after the State Health Dept. announced that there were still just 2 cases of coronavirus in Pennsylvania, a day after the first cases were confirmed.

The first two cases confirmed were adults in Delaware and Wayne counties.

Like those two initial cases, the 2 new confirmed cases in Montgomery County are each experiencing “mild symptoms” of the coronavirus.

Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine says in an updated statement this evening, “While we anticipate that there will be more Pennsylvanians with COVID-19 in the coming days and weeks, it is important for residents to know the commonwealth is prepared and that they should be, too.”

There are 401 cases of coronavirus confirmed across the US. It’s been blamed for 17 deaths.

State health officials say they’re currently able to test 20-25 people per day for coronavirus. Beginning next week, the state believes it will be able to test between 125-150 people per day.
