Dr. Ross Goldberg is president of the Arizona Medical Association.
He said it's hard to pinpoint why one community sees a spike in COVID-19 cases while another does not, but there are contributing factors. There may be more people living closer together in apartment buildings, workers in close proximity, or maybe, more frequent gatherings among neighbors and friends.
Each week, Arizona's Family analyzes historical data for COVID-19 cases by Zip Code in Arizona. We then track changes week over week and highlight the Zip Codes that have the most new cases.
"We always knew there was going to be a risk, even with wearing masks, even trying to distance," said Goldberg. "When you pack that many people together, your risk goes up. It's simple math, yet depending on what's in that ZIP code could influence the rate of cases you're seeing."
