PHOENIX — Newly released data by the Arizona Department of Health Services breaks down coronavirus-related deaths by county.

Maricopa County had 48 deaths as of Sunday afternoon. Pima County had 29 and Coconino had 19.

Navajo County had eight deaths, Pinal County had four and no other county in Arizona had more than three deaths.

Five counties have not had a single death.

AZDHS published this data on its website Sunday to go with newly released information including deaths by gender, age group and race/ethnicity.

It also presented a map of the state to show which zip codes have been most affected by the coronavirus.

As of Sunday morning, there were 115 deaths due to COVID-19 in Arizona and 3,539 total infections in the state.

Prior to Sunday, the AZDHS website only had county statistics for the number of positive cases.

It had statewide case and death totals to go along with the data on the number of tests given.

For most people, coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.

We want to hear from you.
