Pennsylvania reported 6,047 new COVID-19 infections on Friday, a hopeful sign the state won’t see a repeat of the December surge that brought twice that number of new infections daily.
The state reported 215 deaths — a relatively high figure but, since people usually die weeks after being infected, one that’s likely a delayed result of the earlier surge.
As of Friday morning, 4,848 people were hospitalized with COVID-19, another downward trend and well below the December peak when more than 6,300 were hospitalized.
Still, state health officials this week continued to stress the need to wear face masks, avoid large gatherings and wash hands frequently to prevent spread of COVID-19. The state has vaccinated roughly 400,000 people, mostly health care workers and nursing home residents, but still has a long way to go to protecting all of its most vulnerable residents, and is possibly months away from offering vaccine to everyone.
The new infections bring Pennsylvania’s total to 754,611 lab-confirmed or probable cases since the start of the pandemic nearly a year ago. Experts say 25-40 percent of people who test positive have no symptoms but still can infect others. The new deaths bring the total to 18,957, with most involving people over 65.
Hospitalizations down 20%+ from the December 23 peak of 6151 and daily deaths down nearly 50% from the December 30 peak of 319.
Cause for celebration? NOoooooo...gotta breathlessly report that hospitalizations are "double that of the spring".

Some middle class aren’t destroyed yet.

Of course they fell. COVID will be cured in 5 days. Will turn out the HQL and Vitamin C actually was the correct choice, but Trump refused to listen to his people at CDC and insisted on vaccinations.
Wow! The messiah has arisen Joe Biden will cure the Covid the economy etc. wait for it people wait for it.What a sham! We all knew it was a hair on fire hoax by the media. Every day pounding it in our heads that millions were dying because of Trump letting the virus in the nation. Our local TV station constantly beating the 🥁 every evening quoting corona deaths, infected and recovery but guess which one got more coverage! This is insane I don’t know how we’re going to cope four years of this crap and maybe even all the way to eight years. I hate the mediaVomits with a cold black passion!
No reason those over 50 should not be vaccinated in the next 6 weeks, unless the Governor is inept.
The only thing Tommie the Commie Wolf does efficiently is send his gestapo to bars to make sure that customers are wearing masks while entering, leaving, peeing, and pooing.
There must be bodies everywhere.
Please watch and read the following.
The CDC, NIH, WHO have suppressed an effective early treatment of covid. You need to petition you governors to fix this. Ivermectin has been on the table since the first tests early this year from Australia. Dr Cory has testified before the Senate twice now. Also attached is latest from India and EVMS Dr Marik.
To the Goveners of this county, get your heads out of your ass and fix this... The people in DC will not.
Full Dr Cory Senate, Dec2020
EVMS Protocols (by Dr Marik)
If you can put this in front of your govener, please do so...
I am puting this out as much as I can, my version of an echo, feel free to copy at will...
Yes. Dr. Biden will kill it immediately.
I took NyQuil every night when I had Covid. It was like a very mild flu. I didn’t even stay in bed. The hospital took 10 days to give me the Positive result. By that time I was over it.
Suddenly COVID lockdowns need to be over, case rates are dropping, all just in time for biden to be “inaugurated”.
