Pennsylvania COVID-19 Test Data by County/Zip Code; Student Meals 1 Day/Week; 4yo Shot and Killed
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

Pennsylvania officials have published an interactive map that shows both confirmed cases and the number of negative tests in the state. The data is available on both a county level and a zip code level. The county level also shows the number of deaths. 34,528 people have tested positive, 132,323 patients have tested negative, and 1,564 have died in the commonwealth. About half, 796, have died in nursing homes and long term care facilities. "As we see the number of new COVID-19 cases continuously change across the state that does not mean we can stop practicing social distancing," Sec. of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said. "We must continue to stay home to protect ourselves, our families and our community. If you must go out, please make as few trips as possible and wear a mask to protect not only yourself, but others. We need all Pennsylvanians to continue to heed these efforts to protect our vulnerable Pennsylvanians, our health care workers and frontline responders." She also said that even residents in areas with low numbers of confirmed cases should continue to be vigilant, practice social distancing, and follow stay-at-home guidelines as those published numbers are probably under reported due to lack of widespread testing in those areas.


The City of Philadelphia announced that starting this Thursday, 4/23, it will begin to distribute free student meals only one day a week at meal sites located at School District schools. Those sites will now be open on Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon. Families will received 10 meals (5 breakfasts and 5 lunches) and a half gallon of milk per student. The box weighs six pounds, so you may want to bring a cart if you are picking up for multiple students. The city says, "The one-day-per-week schedule is a proactive measure we are taking to further support the city's shelter-in-place guidance, minimize social interactions and help flatten the coronavirus curve."


Philadelphia Police are investigating after a 4-year-old girl was shot and killed in Northeast Philadelphia around midnight Tuesday morning, 4/21. It happened on the 2900 block of Secane Drive in the Parkwood neighborhood. Police were called to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital after the young girl arrived suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach. She was driven there by her mother and uncle. She died a short time later. Investigators went to the home and are trying to determine what happened. "We don't know who was handling the firearm, if it accidentally discharged. We don't know at this time. However, homicide detectives, crime scene personnel are conducting an investigation. They are also talking to family members," said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small. "Police went to the location and found a blood trail leading from the front door of the property and we did get information that the girl lived at the location where the blood trail was. At this time we believe the shooting took place inside the property."
