State tests still must be confirmed by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Officials have indicated there’s no reason to believe their presumed positive cases won’t be confirmed by federal officials, too.

Based on questions fielded at Tuesday’s daily briefing from health officials, rumors are circulating around Pennsylvania about other potential cases of COVID-19 coronavirus. However, Levine did not confirm any of those reports.

The first presumed positive case in Pennsylvania was reported on March 6.
