The state said 1,312 people in Arizona have died from COVID-19. There were 41 new deaths reported today.

Across Pima County, 5,019 cases of coronavirus have now been confirmed, up 337 cases from the day before.

There have been 532,697 coronavirus tests given across Arizona, with 15,031 tests reported yesterday.

Among the tests given statewide, 7.8% of them are showing positive for COVID-19, the state said. A week ago, 6.7% 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.
