*BREAKING* Pennsylvania Announces 2 More Coronavirus Cases – Total at 4

No new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in Pennsylvania, as of Saturday afternoon.

The state Health Dept. updated Pennsylvanians on the status of the coronavirus on Saturday afternoon.

“While we anticipate that there will be more Pennsylvanians with COVID-19 in the coming days and weeks, it is important for residents to stay calm,” Health Dept. Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine said. “Right now, you have a higher chance of testing positive for COVID-19 if you have traveled to a country or state with known community outbreaks, or have come in contact with someone who has the virus. We are working with the health care community across Pennsylvania to keep them informed, consult on patient testing and ensuring they have the resources they need to care for patients.”
