This undated electron microscope image made available by the U.S. National Institutes of Health in February 2020 shows the Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, yellow, emerging from the surface of cells, pink, cultured in the lab. Also known as 2019-nCoV, the virus causes COVID-19. The sample was isolated from a patient in the U.S. On Thursday, March 5, 2020, Tennessee's Department of Health Commissioner Lisa Piercey confirmed the state's first case of the new coronavirus.

The numbers reported by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment on Sunday, June 21:

· 30,539 cases

The number of cases includes people who have had a test that indicated they were positive for COVID-19. The number of cases also includes epidemiologically-linked cases — or cases where public health epidemiologists have determined that infection is highly likely because a person exhibited symptoms and had close contact with someone who tested positive. The number of epidemiologically-linked cases represents a very small portion of the reported cases.  

· 5,327 hospitalized

· 1,429 deaths

On May 15, the CDPHE announced it would differentiate between deaths caused directly by COVID-19 and those in which the person had the disease. The number does not reflect changes since May 23. The previously official reported number was 1,647.

· 280,033 people tested

The total number of people tested may not include all negative results.
