COVID-19 cases were reported in Arizona on Saturday

There were 666.901 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 11,248 Coronavirus-related deaths have been reported in Arizona, according to the latest state figures.

That’s a step up from that 658.186 confirmed cases and 11,040 Coronavirus-related deaths were reported on Friday.

A week ago there was 596,251 Cases and 9,938 Deaths reported in Arizona.

8,715 new cases, 208 new deaths were reported on Saturday

The Arizona Department of Health reported 8,715 new cases and 208 new deaths on Saturday.

The department reported three-digit fatalities every day this week, except Monday. The numbers reported on Monday are typically lower compared to the rest of the week due to delays reported on weekends.

Arizona has given 217,716 doses of COVID-19 vaccines and ordered 602,625 doses as of Thursday, but only 21,000 have been fully vaccinated. According to the state, almost two million people currently belong to the Phase 1B group.

Arizona’s cases, deaths, and hospital stays steadily increased ahead of Thanksgiving, when gatherings and travel were designed to keep the coronavirus spreading.

The department reports the number of new cases on the day the cases were reported by counties and hospitals, not the day someone was diagnosed with the virus.

Arizona hit 600,000 coronavirus cases on January 9, 500,000 on December 28, 400,000 on December 12, 300,000 on November 23, 200,000 on August 27, 100,000 on July 6, and 50,000 cases on June 21.

The state had 11,000 coronavirus deaths on January 15, 10,000 on January 9, 9,000 on January 1, 8,000 on December 22, 7,000 on December 9, 6,000 on November 3, 5,000 on August 29, and December 4 August 4,000 6, 3,000 deaths on July 23, 2,000 on July 9, and 1,000 on June 5.

Arizona’s Rt, pronounced r-naught, was 1.07 on Thursday compared to Tuesday, but in the top ten worst in the nation.

The Rt is essentially a mathematical number that indicates whether more or fewer people will be infected.

The concern is that any Rt above 1, no matter how small, means the virus can grow exponentially.

On the day of collection on January 4, the day with the most collected diagnoses, 11,678 cases were reported. The day with the second most frequent diagnosis was December 28 with 11,316 cases. That can change.

Health officials continued to stress that people should continue to be socially distant, wear masks in public, and stay at home if possible.

Maricopa County won’t vaccinate 65-plus until more vaccine is allocated

Dr. Rebecca Sunenshine, Medical Director of Disease Control, said in Maricopa County’s Public Health Update on COVID-19 Distribution that the county’s system will not open vaccine distribution to the 65-74 age group until more vaccines are allocated to the state will.

The priority for the district remains with vaccination phase 1A and the priority groups of phase 1B. This means that the eight pharmacy providers within the system will not start when the AZDHS does.

It is not currently known when the county will receive the allocation of the vaccine it needs for further development. The AZDHS will make appointments for this age group from Tuesday.

Arizona Launches COVID-19 Vaccine Site in Second State

The Phoenix Municipal Stadium will serve as the second state vaccination site starting February 1st.

Arizonans currently eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine – stages 1A and 1B – can register for an appointment starting Tuesday, 9:00 a.m.

This is also the same time that the department will offer Phase 1B vaccinations to people aged 65 and over.

The stadium is only open for vaccinations during the day.

The number of appointments available depends on the number of vaccine doses available at the time.

The Arizona Health Department is setting up a hotline to report companies

The Arizona Department of Health has established two ways to report local businesses that do not comply with COVID-19 guidelines.

People can report companies using a hotline or an online form:

“There is a role for the public too: if you believe a company is not meeting these requirements, which are set out for the safety of customers, employees, and the general public, ADHD encourages you to raise your concerns with local and state officials can track as needed, “AZDHS said in a statement.

Free masks are available for some Arizonans

The Arizona Department of Health announced that some Arizonans could get free masks from the state.

The department worked with Hanes to provide free face masks to Arizona’s most vulnerable populations.

Anyone who is part of a vulnerable population (including but not limited to those with medical conditions or those aged 65 and over), a student (or parents on behalf of students), a school worker, or who may not be able to purchase a free mask .

Each supplies five washable, reusable fabric face masks, one order per household.

The department hopes to be able to issue two million cloth masks.

It is believed that COVID-19 is mainly spread through coughing or sneezing.

It may be possible for the virus to spread by touching a surface or object with the virus and then touching a person’s mouth, nose, or eyes. However, this is not considered to be the main method of diffusion, according to the CDC.

You should consult your doctor if you have traveled to an area currently affected by COVID-19 and have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing.

There is no vaccine against the coronavirus. The best way to prevent COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases is to:

  • Wear face covering in public.
  • Practice social distancing in public.
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces with a normal household cleaning spray or cloth.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
