The figures reported Thursday by the Department of Health Services increased the state’s totals to 190,794 confirmed cases with 4,383 deaths. According to Johns Hopkins University data analyzed by The Associated Press, the 7-day rolling averages of daily new cases in Aizona and daily deaths in Arizona both dropped over the past two weeks. The number of infections is thought to be far higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.
