ADHS: Peoria ZIP codes nearing 5,000 cases

Posted

The Arizona Department of Health Services added over 150 deaths of COVID-19 overnight while reporting over 170,000 cases of as of Thursday morning.

In Arizona, there are 170,798 cases and 3,626 deaths of the novel coronavirus, up 2,525 and 172 from Wednesday morning, respectively. That computes to a 2.12% death rate of confirmed cases in the state, up from 2.05% the day before.

As of July 30, ZIP codes that include Peoria have 4,495 COVID-19 cases. This time last week, there were 3,993 cases, according to ADHS.

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.

More than 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.

Here are the breakdown of COVID-19 cases for ZIP codes that include Peoria and some surrounding areas, according to the ADHS:
