Arizona reports 3,629 new cases of COVID-19, just 1 more death

Arizona health officials reported 3,629 more confirmed COVID-19 cases on Sunday, but only one additional death.

The latest numbers pushed the state’s totals to 1,241,878 cases since the start of the pandemic and 21,940 known deaths.

The Arizona Department of Health Services’ coronavirus dashboard had reported 4,184 cases and 56 deaths on Thursday, 5,070 cases with 78 deaths on Friday and 5,103 cases with 53 deaths on Saturday.

Public health officials are urging people to take precautions against COVID-19 during the upcoming holiday season.

Jessica Rigler, the assistant director of the Department of Public Health Preparedness, said all Arizonans should be vaccinated, wear masks in indoor public settings, maintain physical distancing, wash their hands often, stay home if they are sick and should be tested if they have symptoms or are exposed to a person with COVID-19.

As of last month, most of Arizona’s daily case reports ranged between 2,000 and 4,000, with a few larger reports attributed to data glitches lowering previous days’ reports.

According to data from Johns Hopkins University, the seven-day moving average of daily new cases has risen in the past two weeks from 2,809 on Nov. 4 to 3,685 on Thursday.

COVID-19-related hospital admissions are also on the rise, with 2,419 virus patients occupying hospital beds as of Friday.
