Arizona health officials are reporting 438 more cases of COVID-19 and 27 additional deaths.

The state Department of Health Services released its latest coronavirus figures Wednesday. The total number of cases in Arizona now stands at 215,284 and related deaths at 5,525. Meanwhile, the number of in-patient hospitalizations due to COVID-19 and ventilator usage rose slightly. According to Johns Hopkins University data analyzed by The Associated Press, the rolling average number of daily new cases has increased over the past two weeks by 276 _ an increase of 52%. The increase in the average followed the state's decision to include “probable” results from less-accurate antigen testing.
