PHOENIX (AP) — Health officials in Arizona on Sunday reported 2,182 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 32 additional deaths.

The latest numbers increased the state’s pandemic totals to 1,118.601 cases and 20,382 known deaths since the pandemic.

The Arizona Department of Health Service’s coronavirus dashboard also reported COVID-19-related hospitalizations continuing to range below 1,800 with 1,775 virus patients occupying beds as of Saturday.

That was up 22 from Friday, but more than 300 below the peak of the current wave.

During the current surge, daily reported increases in cases reached as high as 4,740 while daily reported increases in the death toll topped 100 three times and virus-related patient counts exceeded 2,000 for weeks.

According to Johns Hopkins University data, the seven-day rolling average of daily new cases in Arizona declined from 2,467.1 on Sept. 23 to 2,405.1 on Thursday while the rolling average of daily deaths dropped from 51.1 to 40 during the same period.

More than 4.2 million people (59.3% of Arizona’s population) have received at least one dose of vaccine in Arizona with over 3.7 million residents fully vaccinated.

The nationwide rates are 65.3% with at least one dose and 56.4% fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

On Sunday, Pima County reported 233 news cases of COVID 19 and one new death.
