Arizona tops 123,000 cases of COVID-19


The Arizona Department of Health Services is reporting over 123,000 cases of COVID-19 as of Monday morning.

In Arizona, there are 123,824 cases and 2,245 deaths of the novel coronavirus, up 1,357 and eight from Sunday morning, respectively. That computes to a 1.81% death rate of confirmed cases in the state.

Arizona — the 14th most populous state in the U.S. — is one of nine states with over 100,000 cases.

The Maricopa County Department of Public Health reports 80,780 cases and 1,101 deaths in Arizona’s most populous county. State and county numbers differ depending on reporting times.

Maricopa County shows a case rate of 1,811 cases per 100,000 residents, using 2019 Census Bureau estimates. The state average is 1,701. Santa Cruz County has the highest at 4,701 cases per 100,000 residents.

The coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms such as fever and cough for most people.

But for some — especially older adults and people with existing health problems — it can cause more severe illness including pneumonia, and death.
