Arizona Registers Nearly 1,000 COVID-19 Associated Deaths

PHOENIX — Arizona has registered nearly 1,000 COVID-19 associated deaths as infections continue to climb in the state.

The state Health Services Department on Thursday reported 530 new cases of the virus and 15 additional deaths. A total of 996 people have died since the first death was reported on March 21. The number of reported confirmed cases is now at 22,753.

Health Services Director Dr. Cara Christ said Wednesday the agency is closely monitoring a rise in cases and hospitalizations that started about two weeks after Gov. Doug Ducey ended his stay-at-home order. That’s about the time it takes for virus symptoms to appear.
