Schuylkill County at 9 Positive Coronavirus Cases

While the apparent “spike” in the number of positive cases may alarm some. It appears the state learned of many more test results, too

In addition to the 1,687 positive cases, there are an additional 16,441 negatives. That means 9.3% of those receiving a coronavirus test are testing positive. That percentage has remained fairly consistent since the state started testing. A total of 18,128 tests have been conducted.

Statewide, Philadelphia County has the most positive cases, 402. Montgomery County has the second most, 282. And Delaware County has the third most positive tests, 156.
