Coronavirus in Colorado, June 7: A look at the latest updates on COVID-19

The nation is in its second week of protests over the police killing of George Floyd while a pandemic is still going on. In Colorado, testing has ramped up while case numbers and deaths trend downward. On Saturday, the latest number of deaths caused by the coronavirus held steady at 1,274 with 27,848 total cases statewide.

It generally takes two to three weeks for virus spread to start showing up in the data, meaning the effect of the protests won’t be known for several more weeks.
