PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Allegheny County Health Department is reissuing its daily Coronavirus numbers following a reporting problem Monday morning.

They are now reporting eight new cases of the virus, instead of one. The death toll remains unchanged though.

The number of cases county-wide now totals 1,919 since March 14. This includes 1,798 confirmed cases and 121 probable cases.

In a statement, the Allegheny County Health Department says, “There was a problem with the case dataset this morning. It was fixed by the PA Department of Health (PA-DOH), but not until after ACHD ran its report this morning. We were unaware of the issue until after PA-DOH issued its daily report.”

Officials report that 340 patients have been or are presently hospitalized among all cases; that is no change since Sunday’s report. Of the hospitalized patients, 131 of them have needed care in the ICU, and 67 of them have required treatment with a ventilator.

The death toll remains at 151, with 140 confirmed deaths and 11 that are probable. A probable death is when a person had not had a positive test for COVID-19.

The Health Department says 54% of all Coronavirus patients are female, and 46% of them are male.

The highest number of cases remains in the 25-49 age bracket with 33%. The 65 and older age group has the second highest number of cases at 31%, and the 50-64 age group is third at 27%.
