In Pennsylvania, daily COVID-19 cases have surpassed 6,000 for the second consecutive day.

On Thursday, the state of Pennsylvania reported 6,637 new COVID-19 infections.

According to the latest health department data, 3,032 COVID-19 patients were being treated in Pennsylvania hospitals as of early Thursday, with 679 in intensive care.

While the number of people admitted to hospitals is increasing, it is still less than half of the number who were admitted during Pennsylvania’s winter storm, which put a strain on many hospitals and their staff.

According to health department data, about 2,000 regular beds and more than 530 intensive care beds remained available as of Thursday.
