There have been 218 known COVID-19 deaths in the Tucson-metro area, according to the state health department. Two new deaths were reported in Pima County today.

There have been 429,327 coronavirus tests given across Arizona, with 6.5% of them showing positive for COVID-19, the state says. There were 12,383 tests reported yesterday. 

The 1,127 confirmed COVID-19 deaths in Arizona include:

The coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, for most people. For some people who contract the virus, especially those who are older or have underlying health conditions, it can cause more severe illness and death. The vast majority of people who are diagnosed with COVID-19 recover.
