21 New Virus Deaths Reported In Arizona Tuesday; Death Toll Now 208


Arizona health officials are reporting 21 additional Coronavirus deaths, the most in a day since the outbreak began.

The report Tuesday from the state Health Services Department put the number of deaths in Arizona at 208 with at least 5,251 cases.

The new data comes as Governor Doug Ducey is considering when to reopen the economy, which has essentially been shut down since he issued a stay-at-home order on March 30.

The order expires late next week, but the Republican governor could extend it. Ducey has said he’s going to rely on data from federal and state health experts to make his decision.
