Maricopa County reports 465 new coronavirus cases, 1 death Monday

Posted

County public health data reported 465 new coronavirus cases and one new death Monday.

The amount of new cases was an improvement from the spike of 613 the county saw Sunday, which was the largest total in a month.

COVD-19 cases peaked in the county during late June and early July, according to the Maricopa County Department of Public Health, reaching 3,825 cases in a day on June 29. While today’s numbers still pale in comparison to that surge, the county is experiencing its largest increase in cases since the surge. The county’s seven-day daily average of new cases was 195 on Friday, Sept. 11 and increased to 464 by Friday, Oct. 16, the most recent day of complete data.

The county’s surge in coronavirus-related deaths has lagged a couple weeks after the surge in cases, as is typical with COVID-19 reporting. The county’s worst single-day death total was 69 on July 16. Daily death totals have recently declined to the level they were at before the county’s surge. In the most recent day of complete data, Friday, Oct. 2, the seven-day daily average was four deaths a day. The last time the figure was that low was mid-April.
