As of August 3, Dallas reported 383 additional positive cases of coronavirus and three additional deaths, bringing the total confirmed case count in Dallas County to 51,490, including 691 confirmed deaths. This is the lowest recorded cases in seven weeks.
An overwhelming number of positive cases come from adults between the ages of 18-39. More than half the cases since July 1 have come from this age range, according to the county.
Since July 1, over 2,050 children have been diagnosed since coronavirus. Fifty-two children have been hospitalized.
The increasing number of cases is attributed to social gatherings at homes, bars and other places where social distancing guidelines are not always met.
On Tuesday, July 28, the number of cases for the following ZIP codes were:
75233: 374 cases
75224: 869 cases
75208: 786 cases
75211: 2,282 cases
75203: 384 cases
75216: 1,290 cases
The race most impacted in Dallas is the Hispanic community. Over 1,000 cases and 100 deaths were reported as of July 2020.
The groups still at the highest risk are people over the age of 65, and people who have underlying health conditions. However, Dallas county reports that over two-thirds of Dallas’s hospitalizations come from people under the age of 65, and around half do not have high-risk conditions.
