Los casos de COVID-19 en Arizona, la enfermedad causada por el nuevo coronavirus, ahora se acercan a 12.700, con 624 muertes conocidas, según cifras publicadas el jueves por el estado.

El total de casos identificados de Arizona aumentó a 12,674. Eso es un aumento de 498 casos confirmados, o 4.1%, desde el miércoles, cuando el estado reportó 12,176 casos identificados y 594 muertes.

Los nativos americanos, las personas mayores y los hombres están muriendo en números desproporcionados en Arizona por COVID-19, según los nuevos datos publicados por el departamento de salud del estado.

Según los datos publicados por el Departamento de Servicios de Salud de Arizona, los nativos americanos representan el 17% de los fallecidos por COVID-19, entre los casos de raza y etnia conocidos. Las estimaciones de 5 años de la Encuesta sobre la Comunidad Estadounidense muestran que alrededor del 4.6% de los arizonenses son indios americanos o nativos de Alaska.

Pero los datos están incompletos, particularmente sobre las víctimas de coronavirus. El estado dice que la raza es desconocida para el 41% de los casos de coronavirus y el 20% de los que han muerto.

Sin embargo, los datos muestran una gran disparidad de edad.Las muertes son abrumadoras en los casos mayores de 65 años. De las 624 muertes del estado, 497 han estado en esta categoría de edad.

Los que han muerto también tienen más probabilidades de ser hombres que la población general de Arizona: el 54% de las muertes han sido hombres, aunque solo el 47% de los casos confirmados son hombres.

Es probable que la cantidad de casos reportados en el estado sea mucho mayor que la cantidad reflejada debido a la disponibilidad limitada de pruebas para gran parte de la pandemia.

Esto es lo que se sabe sobre los casos confirmados en Arizona, a partir del 14 de mayo.

El primer paciente viajó a Wuhan.

El 26 de enero, los funcionarios de salud del condado de Maricopa informaron el primer caso del nuevo coronavirus en Arizona.

Fue el quinto caso confirmado en la nación en ese momento.

El hombre, de unos 20 años, es miembro de la comunidad de la Universidad Estatal de Arizona, pero no vive en el campus.

Había viajado recientemente a Wuhan, China.

El hombre no estaba gravemente enfermo y se recuperó en su casa, según los funcionarios del condado.

Para el 21 de febrero, los funcionarios del condado anunciaron que se había recuperado completamente, que había pasado múltiples pruebas que mostraban que ya no tenía el virus y que había sido liberado del aislamiento.

República de Arizona

2 amigos en el condado de Maricopa

El 3 de marzo, el condado de Maricopa informó el segundo caso confirmado del virus en el estado.

Era otro hombre de unos 20 años, según funcionarios de salud del condado.

Este hombre tuvo contacto con otra persona que había viajado fuera de Arizona, dijeron las autoridades. Se estaba recuperando en el aislamiento del hogar.

Esa misma semana, un hombre del área de Phoenix que parecía tener unos 20 años publicó un video en YouTube diciendo que tenía el virus y que le habían diagnosticado el 3 de marzo. Probablemente era el segundo paciente.

El video de YouTube ahora ha sido eliminado, y The Arizona Republic no publica el nombre del hombre para proteger su privacidad.

Dijo que contrajo el virus mientras estaba en París, y contrajo neumonía después de contraerlo, pero se sentía mejor.

“Soy joven, no voy a morir por esta experiencia”, dijo. “Estoy sano, voy a ser bueno, voy a balancearme en un par de semanas”.

Unas semanas más tarde, el 14 de marzo, su amigo también visitó YouTube para publicar que había estado en contacto con el viajero de París y también tenía un caso confirmado del virus.

Drei Marghitas de Phoenix le dijo a The Republic el 16 de marzo que comenzó a notar síntomas similares a los de varios días después de asistir a una fiesta de cumpleaños el 29 de febrero.

En esa fiesta, estrechó la mano de su amigo, pero interactuó con él por menos de un minuto dos veces durante la fiesta, dijo en su video.

También se lavó las manos unos minutos después del apretón de manos, dijo.

El sábado, se enteró de que dio positivo por el virus. Publicó en su cuenta de Instagram una carta que el departamento de salud del condado le envió después de confirmar que tenía el virus.

El virus le dio a Marghitas una serie de síntomas desagradables, como dolores de cabeza, tos excesiva y falta de aliento, dijo.

Dijo que sus síntomas están disminuyendo.

Una familia de 5 en el condado de Pinal

El 6 de marzo, el condado de Pinal informó que una mujer de unos 40 años dio positivo por el virus.

La mujer trabaja en el cuidado de la salud en el condado de Maricopa.

Este fue un anuncio significativo, ya que era la primera vez que había un caso confirmado entre alguien que no había viajado recientemente fuera del estado. Para los funcionarios de salud pública, esto confirmó que había una “propagación comunitaria” en Arizona.

En una semana, los funcionarios informaron que cuatro miembros de la familia de la mujer, incluido su esposo, de unos 50 años, su hijo y una pareja de 60, también habían confirmado casos del virus.

El hijo asiste al campus de Ironwood de la American Leadership Academy, según los funcionarios.

El hijo está completamente recuperado en este momento, según los funcionarios del condado. El resto se está recuperando en casa a partir del 16 de marzo.

El virus se propaga al condado de Pima

El virus continuó propagándose fuera del condado de Maricopa a principios de marzo.

El 9 de marzo, el condado de Pima informó que un residente dio positivo.

La persona vive en una parte no incorporada del condado y había regresado recientemente después de viajar a un lugar con propagación comunitaria del virus, según los funcionarios del condado. Los funcionarios no revelaron la edad o el sexo de la persona.

La persona tenía síntomas leves y se estaba recuperando en casa.

Miembro del personal de la escuela primaria del condado de Graham diagnosticado

El condado de Graham, en el este de Arizona, confirmó su primer caso el 13 de marzo.

Un maestro de la Escuela Primaria Pima de entre 30 y 40 años dio positivo, según Brian Douglas, director del departamento de salud del condado.

El miembro del personal trabaja en quinto y sexto grado, dijo Douglas, y estuvo en la escuela dos días antes en el mes.

El miembro del personal estuvo expuesto al virus después de que alguien de Virginia visitó el área, dijo.

La persona no fue hospitalizada, está bien y se está recuperando en casa, dijo.

El departamento de salud estableció una clínica de pruebas en la Pima Junior High School. Realizó pruebas el 16 y el 17 de marzo y ofrecerá más pruebas de 9 a.m. a 3 p.m. 20 de Marzo.

El condado de Pima ve propagación

El 13 de marzo, el condado de Pima informó que un segundo residente allí dio positivo.

Los funcionarios del condado dijeron en ese momento que estaban investigando cómo la persona contrajo el virus y a quién pudieron haber expuesto.

Dijeron que no había un vínculo claro entre el primer caso en el condado y el segundo caso.

Dos días después, el 15 de marzo, el condado anunció su tercer caso. El condado dijo que un adulto mayor dio positivo. La persona fue hospitalizada en el condado de Pima.

El 16 de marzo, el condado reportó su cuarto caso. Esa persona también está hospitalizada en el condado, según los funcionarios del condado.

El condado de Maricopa confirma más casos a medida que se expanden las pruebas

Los resultados de las pruebas comerciales volvieron por primera vez en el condado de Maricopa el 16 de marzo, lo que llevó a confirmar cinco casos adicionales.

Esto incluye a un hombre de unos 20 años, que probablemente sea Marghitas, el amigo del segundo caso confirmado en Arizona.

También incluye a dos mujeres, una de unos 30 años y otra de 70 años, y dos hombres de 80 años.

En este punto, saber dónde viven los pacientes actuales, o quiénes son, no debería importar, porque no ayudará a nadie a evitar el virus, según la Dra. Rebecca Sunenshine, directora médica para el control de enfermedades de la Salud Pública del Condado de Maricopa Departamento.

“No importa en qué ciudad viva, en el condado de Maricopa hay casos de COVID-19 y es por eso que tiene que cambiar sus hábitos diarios”, dijo Sunenshine el 16 de marzo. “No hay nada sobre saber dónde vive alguien que pueda ayudar evita la propagación de COVID-19 “.

Sunenshine dijo que todas las personas en el condado que han confirmado casos del virus están en condición estable, y el condado no espera que su salud disminuya.

El condado ha notado la propagación entre hogares y amigos, dijo Sunenshine. Ella no dio detalles.

“Sabemos que cuanto mayor sea el nivel de contacto, cuanto más tiempo haya estado cerca de alguien con síntomas, más probabilidades tendrá de infectarse”, dijo. “Es por eso que siempre enfatizamos: mantenerse alejado de las personas que está enfermo, asegúrese de lavarse las manos con frecuencia y evite tocarse los ojos o la boca “.

El 17 de marzo, el recuento de casos positivos aumentó en el condado de Maricopa. Las autoridades de salud dijeron que dos pacientes más contrajeron el virus: un hombre de unos 50 años que estaba aislado en su casa recuperándose y una mujer de unos 60 años que fue hospitalizada.

Los funcionarios de salud del condado de Maricopa también anunciaron el 17 de marzo que un hombre de unos 90 años que previamente había sido identificado como un caso COVID-19 ha sido determinado como negativo y que su caso ya no será parte del total positivo del caso.

2 casos en reserva Navajo

El 17 de marzo, la Nación Navajo informó dos casos de COVID-19.

El presidente de la Nación Navajo, Jonathan Nez, dijo que el paciente tenía “historial de viaje reciente” antes de informar los síntomas al personal de un centro de salud en Kayenta, a unas 24 millas al norte de Chilchinbeto.

La persona, que no fue identificada, fue llevada a un hospital en Phoenix, donde los funcionarios de salud estatales evaluaron al paciente, según un comunicado de prensa.

Arizona’s total identified cases rose to 4,507, with 169 known deaths, according to the most recent state figures. That’s an increase of 273 confirmed cases, or 6.4%, since the previous day, when the state reported 4,234 identified cases and 150 deaths.

Maricopa County’s confirmed cases now exceed 2,400, according to state numbers. All of Arizona’s 15 counties have reported at least one case.

A model from the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation that shows nationwide and international projections was updated to show a significantly different path for the disease in Arizona than earlier projections.

The institute’s Arizona model estimates “peak resource” use was on April 10 — that means hospital beds, ICU beds and ventilators were at their greatest use that day. Based on projections, Arizona has enough beds to meet the continued demand. The earlier projection was April 30.

The projected peak in deaths per day was April 5, with 12 deaths that day, even though Arizona surpassed that number with 19 on April 17. The earlier projection was May 2.

The model predicts Arizona will have 267 COVID-19 deaths by Aug. 4, compared with an earlier projection of 1,005 deaths by Aug. 4.
