PHOENIX — Arizona now has 1,598 reported cases of COVID-19, with 32 deaths from the disease caused by the coronavirus, state health officials revealed Thursday morning.

That’s an increase of 185 cases and three deaths from the previous morning. The state reports 1,651 more tests were given, moving the total up to 22,707.

The Arizona Department of Health Services has been providing daily case and testing updates on its website each morning.

The totals in Wednesday morning’s state report were 1,413 positive tests and 29 deaths, with 21,058 tests having been given. That case total was an increase of 124 from the previous morning.

The number of cases in Maricopa County, the state’s most-populous and hardest-hit county, increased by 90 to 961 on Thursday, according to the state report (the Maricopa County Public Health website’s totals differ slightly from the state totals because they don’t finish compiling numbers at the same time each day).

One more Maricopa County patient died, pushing the metro Phoenix death total to 12.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected” executive order to combat the spread of COVID-19 went into effect Tuesday at 5 p.m. and is active until at least the end of April.

Nationally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 4,513 deaths from more than 213,000 COVID-19 cases as of Thursday’s daily report.

According to data compiled and regularly updated by Johns Hopkins University, there were more than 1 million cases and 51,000 deaths globally as of Thursday afternoon.
