PHOENIX — After an incomplete count Monday, Arizona's coronavirus cases jumped back up with more than 4,000 new ones reported Tuesday.

The Arizona Department of Health Services said a lab partner failed to get its data in for the Monday report so it showed fewer than 700 new cases and no deaths. However, updated numbers posted Tuesday showed 4,682 new COVID-19 positive cases and 44 more deaths in the state.

The overall number of positive cases now stands at 79,215 with 1,632 deaths from the virus.
