Note: We have stopped updating this daily due to the exponentially rising number of cases. Below is information on the first 152 cases. For more up-to-date information, see phoenixnewtimes.com for daily updates on the situation in Arizona.

On Sunday morning, the Arizona Department of Health Services announced a second person had died from COVID-19. The man was a Maricopa County resident in his 70s who had an underlying health condition, officials said.

ADHS also identified 48 additional COVID-19 cases on Sunday, bringing the state total per ADHS to 152. That number does not include some additional cases in Arizona announced by the Navajo Nation late last night, but it's unclear how many of the Navajo's cases are not included in today's ADHS count (a press release from the Nation stated there are four cases in Chinle Service Unit, which is in Apache County, but the ADHS website reports only three cases).

As the number of positive cases identified continues to go up by the dozens daily, and millions of Arizonans suffer the fallout of the highly contagious disease, Phoenix New Times is attempting to keep track of the cases identified within the state. The latest numbers for today, March 22, are in bold.

In Maricopa County, 32 additional people have tested positive for COVID-19 since Saturday, bringing the countywide total to 81. Maricopa County has community spread of the virus (meaning the source of the infection is unknown). The county has the state's highest concentration of cases and has been the only place so far where deaths have been reported.

Though Maricopa County no longer provides detailed case information, a chart from the Maricopa County Department of Public Health indicates 17 people who have contracted COVID-19 in the county have been hospitalized and four are in the Intensive Care Unit. Eight of those who are hospitalized just checked into a hospital in the past 24 hours.

Forty-seven people who tested positive for COVID-19 are over the age of 41, while 34 are between the ages of 18 and 40.

At least one of the recent Maricopa County cases involves a veteran who tested positive at the Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center in Phoenix. Another involves a city of Peoria employee, ABC15 reported.

Arizona State University’s student-run State Press news outlet reported on Saturday that one of the recent Maricopa County cases involves a resident of the Cottages of Tempe, a popular housing location for ASU students. According to the State Press, that person is self-quarantining and has not been to common areas since March 17.

A 56-year-old woman from Gilbert said on Facebook yesterday that she had tested positive for COVID-19 and is self-isolating at home. She said she is experiencing severe symptoms including pneumonia, a deep cough, body aches and pains, and a low-grade fever. She is otherwise healthy and believes she may have contracted the virus while on a trip to New York earlier this month.

Additionally, a 69-year-old man from Chandler told New Times on Saturday that he had been tested positive for the virus. He went to the emergency room at Chandler Regional on March 13 after returning from a trip to Thailand with a fever and a hacking cough. It took about a week to get his results. On Friday, the man found out he had tested positive for COVID-19. He has been self-isolating ever since getting tested and is experiencing a fever, cough, and aches and pains.

The Navajo Nation has 26 cases total as of Sunday morning. A press release from the Nation states that 18 cases are from the Kayenta Service Unit (in Navajo County, Arizona). Four are from the Chinle Service Unit (Apache County) and three are from the Tuba City Service Unit (Coconino County), both of which are in Arizona. One is from the Crownpoint Service Unit, which is in New Mexico. That would mean 25 of the Navajo Nation's cases are in Arizona.

Many of the cases originate from the community of Chilchinbeto, prompting the Navajo Health Command Operations Center to issue a Public Health Emergency Order requiring the closure of the community for quarantine and isolation (a shelter-in-place order) to limit the spread of the virus.

On Friday night, the Navajo Nation expanded the stay at home order to apply to all residents of the Nation. The order requires residents to remain at home and isolated and requires all non-essential businesses to close to prevent further spread of the virus.

Besides the increase in Maricopa and Navajo, since Saturday:

Pima added five new cases (17 total). The county provided no additional details.

Pinal added two new cases (16 total). The two cases involve a woman in her 50s and a man in his 60s. Both are isolated at home and recovering and both are close contacts of another Pinal County case. According to Pinal County health officials, of the county's 16 total cases, 15 are home recovering in isolation or fully recovered, meaning only one person is hospitalized.

Coconino identified three new cases (14 total). Coconino County has tested hundreds of people and has two drive-thru testing sites. At least nine of the 14 total Coconino cases originate from the Flagstaff area.

Yavapai identified two new cases (3 total). The county did not provide any additional details, but local news publications have reported that the two new cases are from Prescott and Sedona. The Prescott case involves a “senior citizen.” The Daily Courier reported that the county’s first case, which was from Sedona, involves a 72-year-old man.

Graham identified one new case (2 total). Graham County Health Director Brian Douglas did not immediately respond when asked for further information on that case. But the Eastern Arizona Courier reported that the second Graham County resident to test positive for COVID-19 is related to the county’s first case involving a Pima Elementary School teacher who unknowingly exposed 166 fifth and sixth graders to the virus after she contracted it from a friend visiting from Virginia.

To date, the state public health lab (ASPHL) has tested 408 people (only 14 additional people since Saturday).

So far, 282 cases have been ruled out. There are 87 cases are pending, and 37 of the samples tested by ASPHL have come back positive. An additional 115 samples tested by private labs have also come back positive, but officials have yet to provide data on the number of tests carried out by commercial labs.

With a population of more than seven million, the testing currently being done in Arizona still does not nearly meet the level of aggressive testing that experts say is required to flatten the curve and stop the spread of the virus.

"There are not enough tests for everyone who wants to be tested at this time," said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, at a press conference on Thursday morning, stating that there is a national shortage of tests for COVID-19.

On March 11, there were 1,200 cases of the coronavirus across 41 states in the country.

As of Friday morning, there are nearly 30,000 known cases across all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and three U.S. territories. At least 377 Americans have died since becoming infected.

The majority of the cases are in New York state (15,168 confirmed cases, up 4,812 since yesterday, and 114 deaths).

(March 22 Correction: This story initially stated there are 164 COVID-19 cases in Arizona. This over-counted some of the Navajo Nation cases that had already been included in the Arizona Department of Health Services' count. Some of the Navajo Nation's total cases in Arizona still do not appear to be reflected in today's numbers from ADHS, but for clarity's sake, this article now reports the case total that ADHS has reported.

She would not say whether the man lived in a nursing home or on his own. Singh also would not say whether all of the man's close contacts had been tested.
