Governor Wolf announces two new suspected positive cases of coronavirus; total now 4

Governor Tom Wolf confirmed that there were two new suspected cases of coronavirus on Saturday afternoon in Pennsylvania, bringing the total to four in the state. Wolf said both people were from Montgomery County, had mild symptoms, and were isolated at home. Wolf said the two people had been exposed to an area in the United States where the coronavirus was present. “These new cases bring our total number of suspected positive cases to four in Pennsylvania,” Governor Wolf said in a press release. “Even with these new cases, I want to reassure the Pennsylvania people that the Commonwealth is prepared and responding appropriately and quickly so that information and resources are available. “I coordinated with both parties’ legislators and we agreed to immediately start working on a package that provides resources to ensure that we aggressively curb the spread of COVID-19.” Officials said the state increased its case-testing capacity at the Exton state laboratory from 25 to 150 a day. Officials said the increased capacity is another indicator of the state’s willingness to speed up the review of cases that are considered necessary based on the symptoms of individuals and when directed by their healthcare provider. The Wolf administration announced the first two alleged positive results – one adult in Delaware County and one in Wayne County. Both have mild symptoms and are isolated at home. To date, there are more than 105,000 cases worldwide, including more than 3,500 deaths. There are 401 cases in the United States and 17 deaths in the United States to date.
