COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations in El Paso continue encouraging declines

Share

El Paso continued on its promising downward trend with COVID-19 over the past week. Now, we wait and see what impact the Labor Day weekend and the reopening of schools will have on that trend.

Here’s our weekly report on COVID-19 data.

New cases

The number of new COVID-19 cases reported in El Paso was at a 12-week low in El Paso this past week.

A reminder on these numbers: the state continues to report weeks-old positive COVID-19 cases to the El Paso Department of Public Health. Local health officials are slotting those previously unreported cases into the appropriate week. Prior week data in this chart is as of Sept. 2.

Hospitalizations

The number of COVID-19 cases requiring hospitalization continued to decline this past week, dropping to levels we hadn’t seen since late June. 

The number of cases requiring treatment in intensive care units dropped below 50, something that had happened only one day previously since May 19.

New reported deaths

El Paso reported more than 20 COVID-19 deaths for the eighth consecutive week.
