HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf's administration reported four more coronavirus-related deaths in Pennsylvania on Wednesday and ordered residents of Lehigh and Northampton counties to stay home, with few exceptions. Before Wednesday, Wolf's orders covered eight counties, including Philadelphia, Allegheny County and Philadelphia's four heavily populated suburban counties. The 10 counties account for half of Pennsylvania's 12.8 million residents and 80% of its more than 1,120 coronavirus cases. Lawmakers also passed a measure to delay Pennsylvania's primary election by five weeks, potentially past the spike of the state's spreading coronavirus cases. Wolf plans to sign it.
