The state Department of Health Services reported 4,471 new cases and 43 additional deaths, increasing the state’s totals to 291,696 cases and 6,427 deaths.

COVID-19-related hospitalizations in Arizona have climbed steadily since October and into November, reaching 1,835 as of Thursday, including 431 patients in intensive-care beds.

The current hospitalizations are about half of the peak during Arizona’s summer surge and more than three times the levels seen in September during a comparative lull before the current surge.
