There are nine total cases of COVID-19 in Bucks County as of Wednesday Afternoon. Health officials announced two additional cases Tuesday night.

Bucks Director of Health Dr. David Damsker says the origins of these new cases are easily traceable.

The first new case is an older adult who is at home with mild symptoms. They are the spouse of an elderly individual who also has coronavirus and is in the hospital in serious but stable condition.

The second is an adult who came into contact with the virus at an out-of-state gathering.

Damsker says despite these new cases, there is still no evidence of community spread.

However, the Bucks County Department is still investigating the origin of one case. The case in question is the elderly individual in serious, but stable condition.

There are 133 cases in Pennsylvania as of Wednesday. The state announced the first COVID-19 related death Wednesday afternoon. The victim was an adult from Northampton County being treated at the hospital.
