Arizona coronavirus cases at 1,289 as death toll rises to 24

Arizona

Arizona now has 1,289 cases of COVID-19, and the disease caused by the new coronavirus claimed four more lives, the state health department reported Tuesday morning.

The case total went up 132 in the past day as the death toll rose to 24.

The state health department has been providing daily case and testing updates on its website each morning.

There were 1,157 cases and 20 deaths reported Monday morning.

Later Monday, Gov. Doug Ducey issued the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected” executive order to combat the spread of COVID-19.

The order, which takes effect Tuesday at 5 p.m. and remains in place at least until April 30, asks Arizona residents to remain in their homes except for essential needs, although the list of “essential services” exempt from the order is lengthy.

Critics, including Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, have argued that Ducey’s definition of essential — including golf courses and hair and nail salons — is too lax and doesn’t do enough to keep the coronavirus from spreading.

Nationally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 2,405 deaths from more than 140,000 COVID-19 cases as of Monday.

According to data compiled and constantly updated by Johns Hopkins University, there were more than 800,000 cases and 39,000 deaths globally as of Tuesday morning.

To help contain the spread of COVID-19 health officials have issued the following recommendations:

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water.
  • Refrain from touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Don’t make close contact with sick individuals.
  • If you are sick, stay home.
  • Cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue and throw the tissue away.
  • Clean and disinfect objects that are frequently touched.
