Arizona reports 3K more COVID cases for 3 days a week


Outbreaks of coronovirus continue in Arizona, with more than 3,000 newly known COVID-19 cases reported in the state. The highest day occurs on the third day of the week on November 14 and one day after July.

The State Department of Health Services reported 3,476 additional cases and 45 deaths, the most deaths on a single day in two weeks. The state totaled 273,063 cases and 43 deaths.

As of Friday, 1,470 people had been hospitalized with coronovirus, the most since the beginning of August. The number of coronovirus patients in intensive care beds reached 362 on Friday, the highest in late August.

Coronavirus in Arizona: Latest case number

Current coronovirus-related hospitals have reached significantly lower levels when Arizona was a national hot spot last summer. At the peak of the summer outbreak, they stayed above 3,500. Arizona outbreaks occurred in September but steadily increased in October and November.

State and health officials have said that the recent increase has been due to factors that include public fatigue with precautions such as business and school re-opening and masking.

Warning that the situation would get worse due to thanksgiving family gatherings and other socialization, officials advised against gathering outside the homes they live together. They also urge people to wear a mask in public, practice social discrimination, wash their hands repeatedly and stay indoors when they are ill.

According to an Associated Press analysis of data from Johns Hopkins University and The COVID Tracking Project, the COVID-19 trial has increased seven-day rolling averages, daily deaths and positivity over the past two weeks.

The average of daily new cases increased from 1,166 on Friday to 2,116 on 30 October, while the average of daily deaths increased from 9.9 to 21.1 and the average of test positivity increased from 10.5% to 14.7%.

Test positivity is an important metric of the degree of community spread of the virus.

The number of infections is believed to be far higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest that people can become infected with the virus without feeling ill.

For most people, the new coronovirus has mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can lead to more serious illnesses, including pneumonia and death.
