SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Interactive heat map shows how San Diego County health officials are recording COVID-19 deaths by zip code.
To interact with map, use any of the tools in the tool bar located in the top left corner.
You can draw a section of the map to pull data for that area using the lasso tool, use your mouse or touch pad to click inside any of the outlined territories, or hover to discover number of cases by zip code (see screen grab below).
According to most recent zip code data released by the county last week, three areas make up half the total deaths in the county: Southeast San Diego (67 deaths), South Bay (156 deaths) and City Heights (13 deaths). They are among the most ethnically diverse areas in the county.
Note: Number of deaths is not displayed for zip codes with counts between 1-5. Zip code is zip code of residence, which may not be location of exposure. Data is preliminary and subject to change.
