April 13 Ariz. COVID-19 weekly update adds 2,777 cases, 142 deaths

Arizona’s coronavirus case and death numbers were lower in the state’s latest weekly report, but with the end of Arizona’s emergency declaration it’s harder to know how hospital levels compare to previous weeks.

Health officials on Wednesday reported 2,777 new COVID-19 cases and 142 new known deaths over the weeklong period ending April 9. 

Just under 2,000 new cases were added from tests done during the past week, state data shows, continuing recent weeks’ lower case reports. Case numbers in recent months are likely not showing the full picture of infections as many more people have been using at-home test kits and may not be reporting their positives to county health departments. 

Reported cases since the pandemic began are at more than 2 million. Known deaths in Arizona have passed 29,800.
