On Thursday morning, Verde Valley Medical Center reported a hospital count of 31 patients in the 74-bed hospital, with three patients in the intensive care unit. Coronavirus was confirmed in one of these patients. There are five patients with test results pending at VVMC.
VVMC officials emphasized: “All cases of COVID-19 are assigned to the county in which the individual lives, not necessarily where the patient is treated. Northern Arizona Healthcare’s Verde Valley Medical Center serves patients from many countries outside of Yavapai County, where Verde Valley Medical Center is located. This means that the numbers shown on our dashboard may be higher than the numbers shown on the Yavapai County website. The numbers are also correct from the day and time displayed. “
Flagstaff Medical Center currently has 127 patients, 42 of whom are positive for COVID-19 with 30 tests pending. See nahealth.com/covid-19-resources.

How do people become infected with COVID-19?
Viral droplets, transmitted through an infected person’s cough or sneeze, enter through the nose, mouth, or eyes – the common entry points for respiratory viruses. Even if they don’t cough or sneeze directly on you, touching something that an infected person recently touched and then touching your face, nose, mouth, or eyes can get the virus. From there it travels to the back of your nasal passages and the mucous membranes in your throat. Symptoms such as a sore throat and dry cough are common here. Then the virus spreads to the lungs through the airways. When the lung membranes become inflamed, it becomes more difficult for them to work properly.
In addition to causing problems in the lungs, the virus can cause nausea, diarrhea, or indigestion when it infects cells in the gastrointestinal system.
It can take as little as two or up to 14 days for the first symptom to develop after exposure to COVID-19. The first symptom of COVID-19 is usually a fever. Then respiratory symptoms such as dry cough and shortness of breath appear, which often lead to pneumonia. The worst cases often result in respiratory failure, which can lead to death.
