Pennsylvania’s top public health official said Saturday that she’s seen “no evidence” that the pace of COVID-19 infections are slowing down, as she underlined the need for people to wear masks when they go out in public.
“We are relying on Pennsylvanians to do the right thing; to protect themselves, their families and their communities,” state Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine said in an online briefing.
Health officials reported 10,017 confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Saturday, with the illness now present in 64 of 67 Pennsylvania counties. So far, 136 Pennsylvanians have died as a result of the pandemic.
On Saturday, Levine stressed that need again, repeating a maxim that’s spread across social media: “My mask protects you; your mask protects me,” she said
