CLEVELAND — In its Friday update on COVID-19, the Cuyahoga County Board of Health released an updated map of cases by zip code, which shows an increase in cases due to community spread.
There are now 746 cases and 20 deaths in Cuyahoga County, not including the 259 cases and two deaths in the City of Cleveland.
The onset date of illness for those who tested positive for coronavirus was Feb. 29 to April 6, with the age of those infected ranging from 1-week-old to 101 years old.
To date, the county has given 737 isolation orders, 1,427 self-quarantine orders and cleared 143 people.
Cuyahoga County Board of Health Director Dr. Heidi Gullett said as predicted on April 3 when the last zip code data map was released, the zip codes are getting darker, meaning cases are increasing.
"The key takeaway from this is that the infection is everywhere. And again, remember, what you're seeing here is the address that people who have tested positive report as to where they live," said Gullett.
The data shows that only 11 to 13% of people tested for COVID-19 have tested positive.
"This is not the location where they were exposed to the infection. We don't know in many cases because of the degree of community spread, it could have been at the store when they were out getting food, could have been at work. It could have been anywhere where they encountered someone else," said Gullett.
