Arizona lists over 4K more COVID cases for 3rd time in week

Posted

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona on Friday reported more than 4,000 additional known COVID-19 cases for the third time in a week as related hospitalizations continued to increase amid the continuing surge in the coronavirus outbreak.

The Department of Health Services' coronavirus dashboard reported 4,314 additional cases and 20 deaths, increasing the state's totals to 318,638 cases and 6,588 deaths.

The dashboard reported that 2,301 people were hospitalized for COVID-19 as of Thursday, including 532 in beds in intensive-care units.

The number of infections is thought to be far higher than reported because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes 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 cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.
