Arizona Reports a New Daily High of Nearly 2,400 More Confirmed COVID0-19 Cases

PHOENIX — Arizona has reported a new daily high of nearly 2,400 more confirmed coronavirus cases.

The state Department of Health Services reported 2,392 new cases and 25 additional virus-related deaths on Tuesday. A day earlier, the state recorded 1,104 new confirmed cases and eight deaths, bringing the state's totals in the pandemic to 39,097 cases and 1,219 deaths.

It’s unclear how many of the new cases are due to expanded testing.

Arizona has drawn national attention as one of several emerging virus hot spots. Some experts have criticized Gov. Doug Ducey and his administration for not doing more to stop the spread of the virus, such as enforcing the use of face masks and increasing contact tracing.
