158 new COVID-19 cases mapped to Scottsdale in past week

Posted

The number of new positive COVID-19 cases in Scottsdale has increased by 158 in one week, according to numbers mapped to the city’s nine ZIP codes.

In total, 5,678 total cases of COVID-19 mapped to Scottsdale’s nine ZIP codes were reported by the Arizona Department of Health Services on Sept. 14.

Last week, 5,520 total cases of COVID-19 were mapped to Scottsdale.
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, according to the ADHS.

Data available through ADHS shows cases per ZIP code are reported as:

  • 85257: 1096 cases;
  • 85251: 1407 cases;
  • 85250: 322 cases;
  • 85258: 459 cases;
  • 85260: 866 cases;
  • 85259: 400 cases;
  • 85255: 839 cases;
  • 85266: 165 cases; and
  • 85262: 124 cases.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

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