DENVER — According to updated data released Friday by the state, the current coronavirus case summary reads as follows:

36,191 cases* (+1,075 from Thursday)
5,864 hospitalized (+33)
61 counties (unchanged)
382,859 people tested** (+8,698)
1,724 deaths (+18) among cases, 1,586 deaths (+5) due to COVID-19
391 outbreaks (+4)

*The number of cases includes people who have had a test that indicated they were positive for COVID-19. The number of cases also includes epidemiologically-linked cases — or cases where public health epidemiologists have determined that infection is highly likely because a person exhibited symptoms and had close contact with someone who tested positive. The number of epidemiologically-linked cases represents a very small portion of the reported cases.

**The total number of people tested may not include all negative results. 

El Paso County has reported 2,935 positive cases (+131) and 115 deaths (+5).

Pueblo County has reported 422 positive cases (+5) and 31 deaths (+1).
