ADHS: Peoria area ZIP codes eclipse 30,000 COVID-19 cases, up 23% since April


Arizona Department of Health Services reported 3,307 new coronavirus cases and three new deaths Sunday, for a total of 986,082 cases and 18,300 deaths.

In the Peoria area, cases are at 30,757 compared with 29,765 this time a week ago, a difference of 992, according to Arizona Department of Health Services.

This is an increase of about 15% since the beginning of June, and 23% since the beginning of April.

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.

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.
