ADHS: Peoria area ZIP codes up 165 COVID-19 cases from last week

Posted

Arizona Department of Health Services reported 975 new coronavirus cases and six new deaths Thursday, for a total of 235,882 cases and 5,865 deaths.

In the Peoria area, cases are up from 5,811 to 5,976 compared to this time last week, a difference of 165 cases, according to Arizona Department of Health Services.

In the previous week, cases increased by 290.

Over 90% of cases were mapped to the address of the patient's residence. If the patient's address was unknown the case was mapped to the address of the provider followed by the address of the reporting facility.

Vincere Cancer Center has a mobile testing van. The tests are free, but appointments are required at www.Phoenix.gov/COVIDTesting.

AZDHS and ASU Biodesign have partnered to make available COVID-19 saliva testing for Arizonans. It’s quick, easy and free.

The coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms such as fever and cough for most people. The vast majority of people who are diagnosed with COVID-19 recover.

But for some — especially older adults and people with existing health problems — it can cause more severe illness including pneumonia, and death.
