Lockdown Ending Causes Highest One-Day Increase in Coronavirus Cases in Arizona

The US state of Arizona has reported its highest number of coronavirus cases within a day, ever since this pandemic has started. This single-day increase also reports a high admission rate in hospitals suspecting coronavirus. These coronavirus cases in Arizona suggest that ending the lockdown was probably not the wisest idea.

Medical experts believe that it was somehow ‘predictable’ considering the risks of easing the lockdown. Not to forget, the ‘stay at home’ rule in Arizona already ended some two weeks before and now everything seems normal there.

But in terms of virus spread, coronavirus cases in Arizona have been recorded as highest. It is similar to the viral peak in the month of May when the state was trying to handle all these cases.

The Arizona Department of Health Services dashboard has confirmed this information on its website.

Also, the Arizona state has made another record for more than a thousand hospital admissions within a day. However, not all of these cases were of coronavirus. Still, this is worrisome news that so many other infections are making people severely sick.

Within a day, coronavirus cases in Maricopa County have reached 615 but it is hard to tell how many of these cases are reported within the last 24 hours. Also, this increase in confirmed patients also tells that additional testing is helpful to find coronavirus cases in Maricopa County even if they are mild.

Overall, the coronavirus cases in Arizona are 21,250 to this day. For all these confirmed patients, the state conducted more than 330,000 screening tests to find out coronavirus positive patients.
