The Bucks County Health Department today reported 26 more positive cases of COVID-19, only 17 of which are considered still to be infectious.

Nine of the new cases are delayed reports involving Bucks County residents who no longer are considered infectious because the cases are too old.

Two deaths also were reported: a 95-year-old woman who died two weeks ago and a 67-year-old woman who died today. Both lived in long-term care facilities and had underlying health conditions. A total of 477 Bucks County residents who tested positive for COVID-19 have died in the pandemic.

Of the 26 cases reported today, nine were spread through household contacts, eight are residents of long-term care facilities, four were attributed to pure community spread, and two were infected through work contacts. Three were not able to be interviewed immediately.

Eighty-five Bucks County patients are hospitalized, 17 of them in critical condition and on ventilators. A total of 5,030 county residents have tested positive for the coronavirus, 2,070 of whom are confirmed to have recovered.
