PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona health officials are reporting just over 200 new COVID-19 cases but no additional deaths.
The state Department of Health Services released its daily coronavirus data Monday morning.
The agency tallied 213 confirmed COVID-19 cases. With those cases, the statewide total is now at 208,725. But the known death toll remains at 5,322.
Pinal County reported only four new cases.
In-patient hospitalizations due to the virus, including ventilator and intensive care unit usage, continue to be on the decline.
Johns Hopkins University data analyzed by The Associated Press showed drops in seven-day rolling averages of daily new cases and daily deaths over the past two weeks.
The number of infections is thought to be far higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.
For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. But for some — especially older adults and people with existing health problems — it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.
