Coronavirus in Colorado: Monday, July 6 evening update


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

34,257 cases* (+192 from Sunday)
5,591 hospitalized (+26)
61 counties (unchanged)
357,751 people tested** (+4,993)
1,691 deaths (-10) among cases, 1,542 deaths (+21) due to COVID-19
367 outbreaks (+1)

*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 2,645 positive cases (+37) and 109 deaths (-11). ***

*** Due to in-depth review of select deaths in probable cases amongst long-term care facilities, it was determined in conjunction with our coroner and medical director that 11 of the previously reported deaths were due to other reasons and therefore removed.

Pueblo County has reported 408 positive cases (+1) and 30 deaths (unchanged).
