Idaho broke numerous records related to COVID-19 on Friday as health officials reported a record number of daily cases and the number of deaths in a single week hit a peak.

According to an Idaho Statesman analysis of data from the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and local health districts, the state added 1,618 confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Friday, as well as 407 probable cases. The number of confirmed cases is a single-day record, as is the combined total of 2,025 new cases for the day. Idaho has only once before reported more than 2,000 new cases — Nov. 27, when officials reported two days of case data following the Thanksgiving holiday.

Ada County alone reported 433 new confirmed coronavirus infections Friday. That brought the county’s seven-day moving average of new daily confirmed cases to a record 312.6, which is the first time the seven-day moving average for the county has exceeded an average of 300 new cases per day.

Canyon and Kootenai counties also reported triple-digit new cases. Kootenai County, home to Coeur d’Alene, reported 311 new cases (7,507 total) while Canyon County added 200 new cases (14,720 total).

Statewide, officials reported 16 new COVID-19-related deaths on Friday: Ada County (6 new, 264 total), Bannock County (2 new, 37 total), Bonner County (2 new, 9 total), Canyon County (4 new, 153 total), Madison County (1 new, 9 total) and Owyhee County (1 new, 13 total). Southeastern District Health reported both deaths were men in Bannock County, one in his 70s and the other in his 80s. Eastern Idaho Public Health officials said the Madison County death was a man in his 80s. No details were provided for the other deaths.

Since Monday, Idaho has reported 113 COVID-19 deaths — the most in a single week. 

According to data reported Friday, Idaho hit another COVID-19 hospitalizations record on Tuesday with 496. That number dropped to 477 on Wednesday, according to IDHW. There were 105 COVID-19 ICU cases in Idaho on Wednesday.

Since March, officials have reported 91,523 confirmed cases statewide. Health and Welfare reported that Idaho has had 17,123 probable cases of the coronavirus and estimates that 42,671 people are presumed to have recovered from the virus.
