“Earlier today the Department of Health confirmed a person passed away from COVID-19,” Governor Tom Wolf said from his private residence. The at-home briefing with no attendees was an example of what social distancing should be, according to Gov. Wolf.



‘Now our only hope is to keep our hospitals from getting overwhelmed so our medical professionals could do the best they can. We need to work together if we want to save lives. We need to stay home, if we want to save lives. We have to work together, if we want to save lives. I believe that Pennsylvanians are great people and all of us will step up and do our part to get through this crisis.’

“This is the first death for the Novel coronavirus in Pennsylvania. For the sake of the family’s privacy we will not provide any information about this individual at this time.”
