Denver Neighborhood COVID-19 Update: Improving Numbers Now

Denver Neighborhood COVID-19 Update: Improving Numbers Now
9News via YouTube

The falling number of COVID-19 cases across Colorado is mirrored by the situation across Denver. While the virus certainly hasn't gone away, the proliferation of new cases has definitely slowed, as demonstrated by our neighborhood-by-neighborhood breakdown.

Early on, Denver Public Health's Denver COVID-19 Data Summary page tracked neighborhoods historically, mapping information about total cases for each area since the start of the pandemic — and that continues to be the approach for most other city data sets, including overall cases, which currently stand at 10,522, and deaths from the novel coronavirus, 426. But shortly before the publication of our July report, DPH switched to a snapshot format that showed positives cases for a single week — in that instance, July 5-11.

August 2-8 is the latest week on view, and the contrast is striking. During that week In July, fifteen neighborhoods registered no positive cases; in August, the number is up to eighteen. In July, seventeen neighborhoods had a case rate of over .5, translating to resident infections above one-half of 1 percent; in August, there were eight. In July, three neighborhoods scored case rates above 1 percent; in August, only one did so. In July, 21 neighborhoods reported five new positive COVID-19 cases or more; in August, that sum is down to nine.

The neighborhoods currently reporting the highest number of new cases during that week in August are among the most diverse in Denver, including Montbello (11) and Gateway/Green Valley Ranch (19), demonstrating once again the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on communities of color.

Here are the stats for Denver neighborhoods from August 2 to August 8, along with comparisons with the July figures, listed in ascending order of case rates.
