AP, file

Arizona health officials are reporting more than 600 new COVID-19 cases and one additional death, inching the state’s total death toll close to 6,000.

The state Department of Health Services said the 666 cases reported Monday increases Arizona’s total to 248,139 since the coronavirus pandemic began with the known death toll now at 5,982. The latest numbers are a sharp drop from Saturday, when health officials reported the biggest spikes in months with 1,901 new cases and 45 deaths. However, numbers tend to be lower on Mondays as hospitals sometimes lag in reporting during the weekend.
