KINGMAN – Bullhead City COVID-19 cases continue to mount, with five of the six new cases confirmed the evening of Monday, June 8 being from that service area.
All five new Bullhead cases are recovering at home and linked to another case. Three are in the 19-29 age range, one is in the 40-49 range, and the last is in the 60-69 range.
The sixth case reported Monday is from the Kingman service area, and involves an individual in the 19-29 age range who is recovering at home.
The Kingman service area includes Kingman, New-Kingman/Butler, Chloride, Valentine, Meadview, Wikieup, Yucca, White Hills, Hackberry, Peach Springs, Dolan Springs, Golden Valley, Hualapai tribal areas, Oatman and Valle Vista.
There are now 236 cases in the Kingman service area with 36 deaths, 176 in Bullhead City including 11 deaths, 90 in Lake Havasu City with nine deaths and eight cases in the Arizona Strip. Mohave County now has a total of 510 cases and 56 deaths. According to the Mohave County Department of Public Health, 119 county residents have recovered.
One Lake Havasu City case was de-duplicated, and therefore, the total number of cases is one less for the Lake Havasu City Service Area. The county wrote in a news release that as a result of a recent review, the case count and respective demographic data will be adjusted slightly to show accurate data.
“There are a number of reasons for the adjustment, including the removal of cases that did not have a permanent address in Mohave County, reconciliation of cases reported twice or not originally reported, and removal of probable cases,” the county continued.
According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, 6,749 county residents have been tested for the virus, including 5,272 tests for the virus, and 1,477 blood tests for antibodies.
Statewide, AZDHS was reporting 27,678 cases with 1,047 deaths. More than 400,000 state residents have been tested. Nationwide, Reuters was reporting more than 1.9 million cases and 110,889 deaths.
