484 new cases, 22 new deaths were reported on Tuesday

The Arizona Department of Health reported 484 new cases and 22 new deaths on Tuesday.

Arizona hit 200,000 coronavirus cases on August 27, 100,000 on July 6, and 50,000 cases on June 21. The state reached 5,000 coronavirus deaths on August 29, 4,000 on August 6, 3,000 deaths on July 23, 2,000 on July 9, and 1,000 on June 5 on July 9.

Arizona’s Rt, pronounced r-naught, was 1.01 on Monday, compared to 1.05 on Sunday.

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.

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.
