SAN ANTONIO – The City of San Antonio has released location-based data on its website that allows residents to track the number of COVID-19 cases by ZIP code.
The information was posted on Saturday, about 24 hours after KSAT reported on the discrepancies between what city officials were releasing to the public compared to other local government officials in Texas. That included a lack of location-based information on local cases.
The new statistics reveal the first geographic glimpse provided to the public by local officials of how the new coronavirus has spread around the Alamo City.
More than 50 of the area’s 80+ ZIP codes have at least one confirmed case.
One of the most affluent ZIP codes, 78209, which largely comprises Alamo Heights and Terrell Hills, is the only ZIP code with more than eight cases, as of Sunday night.
Ten other ZIP codes — 78212, 78216, 78219, 78230, 78240, 78245, 78249, 78251, 78254, 78259 — have at least five cases. All others have less than five.
