There are 1,587 individuals hospitalized with COVID-19. Of that number, 314 patients are in the intensive care unit with COVID-19. Most of the patients hospitalized are ages 65 or older, and most of the deaths have occurred in patients 65 or older.

The trend in the 14-day moving average number of hospitalized patients per day is about 4,300 lower than it was at the peak on Dec. 25, 2020. However, the current 14-day average is now also below what it was at the height of the spring peak on May 3, 2020.

Statewide percent positivity for the week of Feb. 26 – March 4 stood at 5.7 percent.

The most accurate daily data is available on the Pa. Dept. of Health website at https://www.health.pa.gov, with archived data also available.

COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

Pennsylvania hospitals began receiving shipments of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine the week of Dec. 14 and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine the week of Dec. 21.

The Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) COVID-19 vaccine was first allocated to Pennsylvania the week of March 1, and the commonwealth is using it for a special initiative involving educators.

Vaccination numbers for Pennsylvania do not include Philadelphia, which is its own jurisdiction, or federal facilities, which are working directly with the federal government.

This week, a total of 4,179,220 doses will have been allocated through March 13:

• 254,150 first/single doses will have been allocated this week.

• 225,890 second doses will have been allocated this week.

To date, of the 4,179,220 doses allocated through March 13, Pa. has administered 2,981,190 doses total through March 7:

• First/single doses, 84 percent (2,029,732 administered of 2,427,085 allocated)

• Second doses, 54 percent (951,458 administered of 1,752,135 allocated)

Mask-wearing is required in all businesses and whenever leaving home, even if fully vaccinated. Consistent mask-wearing is critical to preventing the spread of COVID-19.

There are 114,008 individuals who have a positive viral antigen test and are considered probable cases and 640 individuals who have a positive serology test and either COVID-19 symptoms or a high-risk exposure. There are 3,948,020 individuals who have tested negative to date. Approximately 25,126 of our total cases are among health care workers.

While vaccine supply from the federal government remains limited, the Pa. Department of Health is working to ensure the vaccine is provided in a way that is ethical, equitable and efficient. To keep Pennsylvanians informed about vaccination efforts:

• The Your Turn tool provides a way to register to be alerted when it’s your turn to be vaccinated.

• A commonwealth COVID-19 vaccination guide explains the current process for getting one. Pennsylvanians with questions about the vaccination process can call the Department of Health hotline at (877) 724-3258.
