Arizona health officials Friday reported more than 3,800 new known cases of COVID-19 and 58 more deaths.

Hospitalizations remained over 1,800 for the fourth straight day Thursday and the seven-day rolling average of additional daily cases rose over the past two weeks. Average deaths from the virus, however, dropped during the same period.

Meanwhile, Coconino County reported more than 430 more confirmed COVID-19 cases in its weekly report released Friday.

The summary was for the week Oct. 24-30 and represented a slight drop in cases from the previous week, though the number is still higher than the same week last year.

Flagstaff’s 86005 zip code experienced the largest increase of infections in the county at 96%, and Williams continues to have the lowest percentage of fully vaccinated residents.
