Arizona Health Officials Reported a Big Jump in Coronavirus Pandemic Numbers

PHOENIX — Arizona health officials reported a big jump in coronavirus pandemic numbers on Sunday, including a record daily high of more than 17,200 new confirmed cases — a number they say is likely partially inflated by a lag in reporting during the holiday weekend.

The Arizona Department of Health Services reported Sunday there were 17,234 new cases. That eclipses the previous record of about 12,000 set in early December.

A department spokesman says the jump in daily cases is likely due to a lag in reporting on the holiday weekend as well as from Christmas gatherings.

No new deaths were reported Sunday.

Health officials also reported that just 7% of hospital beds were available statewide and 61% of intensive care unit beds were occupied by people with COVID-19.
