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 32,401 COVID-19 cases and 750 deaths in Chester County.

Yesterday, 220 new cases and one death were recorded from a two-day period, bringing the county’s totals to 32,401 cases and 750 deaths.

Meanwhile, the state reported a one-day total of 4,643 new cases and 48 more deaths.

Chester County’s 32,401 cases represent 3.1 percent of Pennsylvania’s 1,054,298 total cases.
