Here is a look at the numbers by county in Pennsylvania according to numbers released Wednesday by the state Department of Health, including the number of cases and day-over-day change, negative tests and day-over-day change, and number of deaths with the day-over-day change.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health today confirmed 780 additional positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the statewide total to 69,417 in all 67 counties.

The state also reported 113 new deaths Wednesday, for 5,265 total, in 54 counties. That’s a significant increase from previous days. On Tuesday, only 13 were reported.

The increase in total cases Wednesday is about 1.14 percent from the previous day, the highest of the week. The highest one-day increase in total cases statewide was 1,989 on April 9.

We are listing the county numbers by their Department of Health regions, to group them in the way the state is looking at them for possible reductions in restrictions from the coronavirus.
