Arizona is reporting fewer than 3,000 new COVID-19 cases for the first time in nearly two weeks.

The state coronavirus dashboard on Monday reported 2,391 additional confirmed cases.

But there were no new virus-related deaths.

The lower figures might partially be attributed to a lag in reporting figures on the weekends.

Now the state’s pandemic total number of cases is 1,318,580. The number of deaths remains 23,040.

Hospitalizations for COVID-19 remained about the same with 2,688 patients as of Sunday.

Still, hospitals are more crowded because of large numbers of patients being treated for non-virus-related reasons.
