COVID Hospitalizations Rise In Arizona; Over 3,800 New Cases


COVID-19-related hospitalizations continue to climb in Arizona and the state has reported more than 3,800 additional known cases.

The increase reported Wednesday is well short of a record of over 10,300 new cases set Tuesday due to holiday weekend reporting delays. COVID-19 hospitalizations reached 2,699 as of Tuesday. That's up more than 100 from Monday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations in Arizona peaked around 3,500 during the state's summer surge. Health experts say holiday travel and gatherings are expected to add to new cases and hospitalizations over the next few weeks.

The state reported 3,840 additional confirmed cases and 52 more deaths. That increased the state’s totals to 340,979 and 6,739 deaths.
