Arizona Reports Over 4K New COVID Cases For 2nd Day In A Row


Arizona on Friday reported over 4,000 additional known COVID-19 cases for the second day in a row as coronavirus outbreak saw hospitalizations continue to increase.

The state Department of Health Services reported 4,471 new cases and 43 additional deaths, increasing the state’s totals to 291,696 cases and 6,427 deaths.

COVID-19-related hospitalizations in Arizona have climbed steadily since October and into November, reaching 1,835 as of Thursday, including 431 patients in intensive-care beds.

The current hospitalizations are about half of the peak during Arizona’s summer surge and more than three times the levels seen in September during a comparative lull before the current surge.
