State Senator Jake Corman Tests Positive for COVID-19.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The Pennsylvania Department of Health confirmed today that as of 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, November 9, there were 5,269 additional positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the statewide total to 1,608,022.

The statewide cumulative case count now includes 1,667 reinfection cases, including older cases, from Philadelphia County that are now included because the national case definition was revised in 2021 and implemented in Pennsylvania this month.

Under the new national definition, a person who tests positive more than once at least 90 days apart will be counted more than once.

Before the update of the national definition, Pennsylvania and Philadelphia reported positive individuals only once.

Re-infection cases for the remaining 66 counties will be reviewed on Monday, November 15.
