PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona is reporting 346 new confirmed COVID-19 cases and 20 deaths.

The state data dashboard put out its latest numbers Friday, showing the total number of cases and deaths are now 883,037 and 17,673, respectively.

Pinal County reported 72 new cases with two additional deaths. That brings the county totals to 53,090 cases with 903 deaths.

The number of patients hospitalized statewide for virus-related reasons rose from the previous day to 590. Of those, 158 were in ICUs.

Arizona’s seven-day rolling average of daily new cases dipped slightly to 512.7 as of Thursday, according to data compiled from Johns Hopkins University. The seven-day rolling average of daily deaths also dipped compared to a day earlier to 8.4.

In Arizona, less than half of the state’s population eligible to receive vaccines has actually been inoculated. More than 5.9 million doses have been administered so far. Around 3.3 million people have received at least one dose. More than 2.8 million have gotten both doses.
