Eleven more people in Arizona have died from complications of the Coronavirus.

State officials reported Wednesday that 142 people have died since the start of the outbreak. The state reports 142 new COVID-19 infections, bringing the number of known cases to nearly 4,000 across Arizona. Maricopa, Pima, Coconino and Navajo counties reported new deaths.

For most people the coronavirus causes mild to moderate symptoms, but some people experience more severe complications including pneumonia and death.

Governor Doug Ducey’s office says Arizona is joining other places around the country in lighting buildings blue as a symbol of support for medical workers and others responding to the outbreak.
