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 22,413 COVID-19 cases and 543 deaths in Chester County.

Yesterday, 241 new cases and zero deaths were recorded, bringing the county’s totals to 22,413 cases and 543 deaths.

Meanwhile, the state reported 7,275 new cases and 227 more deaths.

Chester County’s 22,413 cases represent 3.1 percent of Pennsylvania’s 733,429 total cases.
