The total cases in Colorado ticked up to 24,269, one known death was recorded in the last 24 hours | Instant News


For the first time since the end of March, Colorado recorded only one death among people with coronavirus in a 24-hour period.

The number of known deaths among people with COVID-19 ticked up to 1,333 on Monday, up from 1,332 deaths recorded on Sunday, the latest status data event. The last time the state recorded one death in a 24-hour period was March 23 – just weeks after the coronavirus pandemic. Throughout April and May, the number of deaths almost always increased by double digits every day.

However, authorities believe that the number of cases and deaths due to COVID-19 is likely to be far higher than reported by public health agencies in Colorado and throughout the country.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment classifies COVID-19 deaths in two categories: deaths from the corona virus and deaths among those suffering from COVID-19. People whose deaths due to COVID-19 have a coronavirus that is listed as the cause of their death. Deaths among those with COVID-19 including people who have the corona virus may have other causes of death listed on their death certificate. The department began distinguishing the two categories on May 15.

The total number of new cases reported in Monday’s data also dropped significantly compared to previous weeks.

The total number of positive cases in Colorado rose to 24,269 on Monday, up 95 from the previous day, data released Monday by the state health department showed. The number of new cases is relatively small compared to the increase in hundreds of dailies seen throughout April and May. The last time the country recorded less than 100 new cases in a 24 hour period was March 20.
