--original story--

State officials on Wednesday reported three more diagnosed cases of the coronavirus in Arizona, raising the total to nine.

The state Department of Health Services did not immediately release any details about the three additional so-called presumptive positive cases.

However, a chart on the agency's virus website indicates the three cases are among eight believed to be resulted from person-to-person contact.

One case is listed as travel-related. Presumptive positive cases have been tested positive by an Arizona lab and are subject to confirmation by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
