The Arizona Department of Health Services reported more than 3,000 new coronavirus cases Thursday.

With 3,056 new cases, the statewide total is 63,030, the department said Thursday in its daily tally. The total number includes people who have recovered.

The state said 1,490 people in Arizona have died from COVID-19. There were 27 new deaths reported today.

Across Pima County, 6,546 cases of coronavirus have now been confirmed, up 228 cases from the day before.

There have been 272 known COVID-19 deaths in the Tucson-metro area, according to the state health department.

There have been 619,143 coronavirus tests given across Arizona, with 19,337 tests reported yesterday.

Among the tests given statewide, 8.9% of them are showing positive for COVID-19, the state said. A week ago, 7.5% of statewide tests showed positive.

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.
