AP, file

Arizona health officials have reported 801 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 and one additional death.

The new figures on Monday come a day after the state saw nearly 1,400 cases _ its highest reported single-day case total since mid-September. Arizona continues to see a slow yet steady increase in the average number of coronavirus cases reported each day as a decline that lasted through August and September reverses. State Department of Health Services officials say the latest numbers increasing Arizona’s totals to nearly 239,000 known infections and 5,875 known deaths. The number of infections is thought to be far higher because many people have not been tested.
