PHOENIX – As coronavirus cases continue to climb, the Arizona Department of Health Services is providing more information about cases in the state.

The department launched an enhanced dashboard on Sunday that breaks down how the outbreak is evolving in the state.

The first section tracks the confirmed cases in the state.

Users are able to see the total number of cases by week as well as a breakdown of cases by age group and gender.

As of Sunday morning, Arizona had 919 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 17 deaths.

The bulk of cases in the state came from people age 20-44 with 332 cases.

People age 55-64 account for 156 of the cases while those aged 45-54 account for 173 cases. This 20-year age bracket accounts for 329 cases in the state.

The second section provides information about testing figures such as how many tests were conducted in a given week and whether they were performed at the Arizona Public Health Lab or a commercial lab.

According to the website, the state had conducted a total of 13,872 tests as of Sunday morning.

Arizona Health Director Dr. Cara Christ this week said models are projecting that Arizona COVID-19 cases could peak in April, with hospitalizations peaking in May.
