Arizona's COVID-19 cases rose by 1,043 and the state reported 14 new known deaths on Wednesday as upward trends continued. The past several weeks have seen relatively higher daily case reports as the virus spreads at its fastest rate in Arizona since June, although case numbers are still well below where they were at during the summer peak. The Arizona Department of Health Services on Tuesday released a video that notes a 57% increase in weekly new cases from September's numbers and tells state residents to "remain vigilant" about following COVID-19 prevention practices like physical distancing and wearing a mask in public. Identified COVID-19 cases in Arizona rose on Wednesday to 241,165 and known deaths were at 5,905, according to the daily report from the Arizona Department of Health Services.
