AP, file

Arizona on Thursday reported 5,442 additional known COVID-19 cases, 82 more deaths and increased hospitalizations as the coronavirus surges in the state.

The additional deaths were the most reported in a single day since August but the state Department of Health Services said 46 resulted from reviews of past death certificates. It wasn’t immediately known whether those deaths occurred during the current surge or earlier.

However, the pace of COVID-19-related deaths in Arizona has increased by 57% in the past two weeks. Arizona has reported totals of over 356,000 known cases and more than 6,800 deaths.
