Boulder County health officials reported Sunday that the number of total positive or probable cases of the new coronavirus rose to 355, an increase of 13 cases.
According to Boulder County Public Health, no new deaths were reported Sunday, with the number of coronavirus fatalities holding steady at 19. Information wasn’t available for two of the deaths, while 14 of the remaining 17 fatalities have involved residents of long-term care locations.
Among those who have tested positive or are probable for having COVID-19, 157 have recovered. To date, 89 people have been hospitalized due to the virus.
Boulder County Public Health is also currently conducting 60 epidemiological investigations into positive coronavirus cases.
According to the agency’s website, these numbers are likely to not reflect the scope of infections in the county, given that there is “community-wide spread.”
Statewide, the number of coronavirus cases neared 10,000, with a total of 9,730 Sunday. More than 46,195 people have been tested in the state. Among those positive and probable results, 1,813 people are being hospitalized with the virus.
The total number of deaths from coronavirus in Colorado has reached 422.
The almost 10,000-case milestone comes as state health officials say they’re seeing a plateau in new cases that likely reflects the state’s stay-at-home order and as state and local officials consider how and when to begin to reopen the economy, according to The Denver Post.
