The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) has updated the Arizona projections - dropping the expected number of deaths through August 4 by 38. The number of deaths per day drops down to 49 from 55. IHME estimates that Arizona won’t peak with their count of daily deaths until April 26. It is too soon to evaluate if the curve is actually flattening, or just slowing down temporarily.
The Arizona Department of Health Services posts their information in the mornings, and this report was created at night, so the numbers do not always match.
Almost 20K tests have been done in Arizona, the most in Maricopa County and the fewest in La Paz County. As testing ramps up, more cases can be expected.
In Yavapai County, the number of cases rose from 19 to 24 in one day. Of even more concern, the first community spread case is documented rather than travel-related sources.
24 positive cases
17 residents from the Quad-Cities area
7 in the Verde Valley
12 are 65+
12 from 18-64

One of the largest concerns in Maricopa County has to be the fact that about 36% of those that are hospitalized are in the ICU.
Coconino County doesn’t typically update until evening hours, although they do offer a lot of information. They added 11new cases overnight.
Yuma has jumped to 12 cases, with 3 in ICU right now.
Santa Cruz added another positive case overnight, and now is up to 3.
The Navajo Nation has 174 positive cases across county and state lines.
