IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - For a while in Idaho, it seemed like the worst of the coronavirus pandemic was over, with most businesses back to nearly normal operations in June.

A new spike of COVID-19, however, has prompted some concern in the mostly rural state.

Idaho Gov. Brad Little has called the spike in cases alarming, but so far hasn’t announced any moves to shut the state back down.

Idaho officials reported a record 487 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday.

That brings the total confirmed and probable cases reported since March to 8,539.

There are a total of 7,884 confirmed cases and 655 probable cases in 42 of the 44 Idaho counties, according to numbers released from the local health districts and the state. See the chart below.

The hotspots so far this week are Ada County, Canyon County, Kootenai County, Twin Falls County and Bonneville County.

Eastern Idaho Public Health is reporting 6 new cases. You can view more HERE.

Southeastern Idaho Public Health has 8 new confirmed cases of COVID-19. You can read more HERE.

The state is reporting there are 2,932 recovered COVID-19 cases. The state said, "Presumed recovered is defined as the number of persons with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis who are alive 30 days post-onset (or referral date if onset is not available) based upon total cases, deaths, and any clinical info available."

The average age of Idahoans with COVID-19 is 37.8 years and ranges from 1 to 100 years of age. The data excludes five persons with unknown age.

The age group with the most cases is 18-29 with 3,016 cases.

No new deaths were reported leaving the total recorded deaths at 94.

State officials say two people who died were between the ages of 50 to 59, 11 people were between the ages of 60 and 69, 19 people were between the ages of 70 and 79 and 62 people were 80+.

94.7% of deaths with known race were White. 2.1% of deaths with known race were Asian/Pacific Islander. 1.1% of deaths with known race were Black or African American, 1.1% American Indian/Alaska Native and 1.1% were "Other race/multiple races." The race category for one death is pending.

92.6% of deaths with known race were Non-Hispanic. 7.4% of deaths with known ethnicity were Hispanic. The ethnicity for one death is pending.

The state said 11 new hospitalizations have been reported bringing the total number to 396, and no new cases have been admitted to the ICU leaving the total at 130.

Idaho is still far from being a national hot spot: The state ranks about 14th in the nation for new confirmed cases per capita, and death rates linked to COVID-19 are minimal here compared to other states.

  1. KIFI staff, would you look at the number of people recovered from COVID. Somewhere along the line your numbers got mixed up. On July 1st you reported there were 4393 people recovered and you are now reporting there 2932 people recovered today according tho this article. If you need the numbers for the last month I have them.
