Arizona COVID-19 Case Update
Health officials in Arizona are reporting close to 1,500 new COVID-19 cases but no new deaths. The daily case count released Monday is slightly lower than the weekend counts. Still, this marks the eighth day that Arizona has seen more than 1,000 new daily cases.
Like the rest of the country, Arizona has seen a significant climb in in virus cases in the last few weeks. Health officials say people who are not fully vaccinated account for the majority of current cases and deaths in Arizona, as has been the case since March. The Navajo Nation on Sunday reported six new COVID-19 cases and four additional deaths.
Meanwhile, Coconino County reports more than 100 breakthrough cases of COVID-19 among fully vaccinated people. Officials also say 89% of known variants have been detected in within the County. Flagstaff is showing the largest increase in cases over the past week compared to other communities. Still, health officials say Coconino County remains at a moderate level of community transmission, while Yavapai, Navajo, Apache, Gila and Mohave counties are showing high transmission, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
