WEDNESDAY P.M. Update: Active Case Count May Be Misleading

Potter County Today
January 13th, 2021

There were 278 more COVID-19 coronavirus cases and 17 more deaths related to the virus across the region between Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Some 13 of the new cases were in Potter County — 10 in the Coudersport area and one each in Shinglehouse, Roulette and Cross Fork. Potter County active case count now stands at 143, with the highest concentrations in the Coudersport area (54), Shinglehouse (30), Austin (28), Roulette (9) and Genesee (8). 

The Pa. Dept. of Health considers a case to be “active,” and the victim contagious, if a positive test result occurred over the past 14 days. A recent U.S. Centers for Disease Control model has found that the actual number of COVID-19 infections in a locale could be as much as eight times higher than the detected cases. Details of the model can be found here.

Also between Tuesday and Wednesday, there were 23 more cases and four more deaths in McKean County; six cases in Cameron; 10 cases and five deaths in Tioga; 88 cases and three deaths in Lycoming; 33 cases and two deaths in Elk; 30 cases and three deaths in Clinton; 45 cases in Cattaraugus County, N.Y.; and 30 cases in Allegany County, N.Y. 

Entering Wednesday, overall case counts since the virus was detected stood as follows: Potter, 729 cases and 16 deaths; Tioga, 2,113 cases, 82 deaths; McKean, 2,141 cases, 41 deaths; Cattaraugus, 3,156 cases, 58 deaths; Allegany, 2,241 cases, 75 deaths; Clinton, 2,278 cases, 37 deaths; Elk, 1,745 cases, 25 deaths; Cameron, 200 cases, 5 deaths; and Lycoming, 7,114 cases, 163 deaths. Statewide in Pennsylvania, there have been 741,389 cases with 18,429 deaths.

Meanwhile, some 45 emergency medical services personnel from Potter County agencies received an initial dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on Friday. Front-line health care providers and residents of skilled care facilities have also been inoculated. Some 326 Potter County residents have received the initial dose and 80 have been administered the full dose.
