The ADHS Monday report shows 36,705 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Arizona.

ADHS also reported eight COVID-19 deaths in the past 24 hours, pushing Arizona’s death count to 1,194, with 277 deaths occurring this month.

Through June 15, ADHS has reported 16,585 new COVID-19 cases and 277 coronavirus-related deaths. By comparison, in May, Arizona gained 12,475 new cases and 597 deaths.

It took the state 64 days to document Arizona’s first 1,000 COVID-19 cases. Seventy-eight days later, Arizona has added more than 35,000 new cases.

Demographic breakdown of Arizona cases

The Monday morning ADHS data shows the 65-and-older age group has accounted for 903 of the state’s 1,194 deaths. There have been 156 deaths reported among people 55-64 years of age.

ADHS reports women contract the virus in higher numbers than men in Arizona (53%), but more men than women die from COVID-19 (54%).

Location of cases

Maricopa County has the highest number of coronavirus cases in Arizona with 19,372.

Pima County has 3,944 cases, with the next highest frequency being in Navajo County with 2,636 cases. Apache County has 1,975 documented cases. Pinal County has 1,568 documented cases and Coconino County has 1,317 positive tests.

Testing data

ADHS reports 479,102 Arizonans have been tested for COVID-19 with the state’s positive test ratio showing a consistent rise so far this month. It currently stands at 7%.

Statewide, the percentage of positive tests has increased since late April, from 5% to 13%.

“More people who are seeking testing have the virus,” Dr. Cara Christ, the state health director, said Friday. “Increased testing has contributed to the increase in cases, and I think that it is telling us, though, that we do have spread within our communities.”

People between the ages of 20 and 44 have had the highest number of positive tests (16,636), but the fewest deaths (58). Seniors 65-and-older have tested positive 5,541 times with 903 deaths.
