The COVID-19 numbers, announced Thursday by the Arizona Department of Health, have pushed some statistics on the spread of the disease past some daunting milestones.
The agency announced Thursday that it was adding 75 COVID-19 deaths to its total. 2,038 Arizona residents have died from the disease, according to ADHD.
On Thursday, the agency also announced 4,057 new diagnoses of the disease in Arizona residents. That brings the total to 112,671 Arizonans who tested positive for COVID-19.
So far in July, the Arizona Department of Health confirmed 28,579 positive tests and 318 deaths.
