PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona health officials are reporting 1,507 new COVID-19 cases but no additional deaths.

Pima County reported 138 new cases Monday, bringing the county's total coronavirus cases to 108,479. 

The latest numbers released Monday increased the state’s pandemic totals to 809,474 cases and 15,502 known deaths. The death toll also went down by three as a result of finding duplicate records.

The number of infections is thought to be far higher than reported because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.

Hospitalizations continue to slide downward. As of Sunday, 1,590 people were hospitalized statewide for COVID-19. Of those patients, 478 were using ICU beds.

Like most states, Arizona has suffered through two waves of the coronavirus virus with the first one starting in mid-May.

Health officials said it took eight weeks for cases to start declining back then, and 16 weeks into the second wave to see new cases start to decrease.
