At least 134 people have died from Covid-19 in Arizona over the last 24 hours, state data shows.
Arizona reported 147 deaths from Covid-19 on Saturday, state data shows. The previous record high was 117 daily deaths on July 7.
The state, which has been experiencing a surge in Covid-19 cases, has improved many of its metrics over the last week. Hospitalizations, ventilator use, and emergency room visits from those with the disease have all decreased from last week’s levels.
One thing to note: These numbers were released by Arizona’s public health agency, and may not line up exactly in real time with CNN’s database drawn from Johns Hopkins University and the Covid Tracking Project.
