Arizona sees additional 414 virus cases, 13 deaths

PHOENIX — Arizona health officials reported 414 new coronavirus cases Tuesday and an additional 13 deaths as the number of virus cases in the state remain steady despite growing vaccination rates.

The state Department of Health Services reported that the total number of cases is now at 884,609, and 17,713 people have died in Arizona since the first death was reported in March 2020.

More than 6 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered since they first became available in the state.

More than 3.3 million people statewide have received at least the first dose. That is 47.3% of Arizona’s vaccine-eligible population. Around 2.9 million are fully vaccinated.

The state is shutting down operations of its mass vaccination sites by June 28, citing widespread distribution of doses at community health centers, doctors’ offices, pharmacies and pop-up clinics.

The number of patients hospitalized for the virus rose slightly to 602. According to the state, 130 of those people were in the ICU.
