Hospitalizations and ICU Use Hit New Highs in Arizona


The number of suspected or known COVID-19 patients in intensive care units and hospital beds across Arizona reached record highs as the state reported 2,800 new COVID-19 cases and 171 new known deaths Tuesday.

Arizona’s seven-day new case average ranks third highest in the nation, and public health experts expect the virus to spread further due to personal contact during the holidays.

Only California and Tennessee have had higher rates over the past week, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID Data Tracker.
