The Arizona Department of Health Services is reporting 22,753 cases and 996 deaths in the state, up 530 and 15 from Wednesday, respectively.

The increase in cases Thursday comes after three straight days in which the state added over 900 cases, including a high of 1,127 on Tuesday.

The Maricopa County Department of Public Health reports 11,150 cases and 451 deaths in Arizona’s most populous county.
