Arizona health officials Thursday reported 1,091 new confirmed COVID-19 infections and 65 additional known deaths.

It was the first day since Aug. 13, when 1,351 cases were confirmed, that the Department of Health Services reported more than a thousand new infections in a day. Arizona was a national hot spot in June and July with cases and deaths trending downward since.

Seven-day rolling averages for new daily cases and deaths statewide continued to decrease through yesterday, according to Johns Hopkins University data analyzed by the Associated Press. The state has confirmed nearly 204,000 cases of COVID-19 and more than 5,100 deaths since the pandemic began.
