June 8 Afternoon Update on COVID-19 in Chester County

Mark Hostutler

Editor’s Note: The Pennsylvania Department of Health’s daily report for confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Chester County and Delaware County have not accurately reflected the actual number of cases in both counties. This is usually because of Delaware County cases that are incorrectly assigned to Chester County, which the Chester County Health Department corrects prior to reporting. The state’s data then reflects the corrections in its next data update. Consequently, the county’s numbers are the most accurate.

Based on the information found on Chester County’s COVID-19 Dashboard, there are a total of 3,193 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 291 deaths in Chester County.

In the last 24 hours, 48 cases and zero deaths were recorded, bringing the county’s totals to 3,139 cases and 291 deaths.
