Pittsburgh Sees a Rise in Coronavirus DeathsRemember when doctors said the holidays would cause a spike in coronavirus cases? And how it usually takes up to two weeks to notice the effects of the virus? Well, it looks like it's starting to kick in.

An article published on Patch news, written by Eric Heyl, titled "Allegheny County Coronavirus Death Toll Spikes Again," states that the Allegheny County Health Department reported 74 new coronavirus-related deaths last week, increasing the total amount to 1,178 since the pandemic began.

In Allegheny County alone, 386 tests came back positive out of 1,942 total tests, which is a positivity rate of 19%. For comparison's sake, the latest positivity rate across the state of Pennsylvania, according to state officials, is 15%. In total, there have been 3,711 hospitalizations during the outbreak. When it comes to the number of deaths, there have been 2,264 deaths just in this region alone, according to the state Department of Health. Here's how the numbers look in the region: 1,178 in Allegheny County, 491 in Westmoreland County, 281 in Beaver County, 256 in Butler County, and 164 in Washington County.
