COVID-19 Trouble in Arizona

COVID-19 hospitalizations are going down in Colorado. Arizona, on the other hand, seems to be having trouble. Reported cases are up. More tellingly: “Hospitalizations have steadily risen. Statewide hospitalizations as of Sunday were at 1,266 inpatients in Arizona with suspected and confirmed COVID-19, which was the second highest number, behind Friday, since the state began reporting the data on April 9. The past eight days have seen inpatient hospitalizations statewide for suspected and confirmed COVID-19 eclipse 1,000. The percentage of positive tests per week increased from 5% a month ago to 6% three weeks ago to 9% two weeks ago, and 12% last week.” That’s really bad. By contrast, the positivity numbers in Colorado are under 3%, and new reported cases are somewhat down.

Cases in Utah also are on the rise. Texas, Florida, and California also are having trouble.
