The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported Saturday that Arizona was tied for fifth in the nation for COVID-19 deaths per capita over the last seven days and fell from 17th to 18th in cases. The state led the nation in both categories at times in January.

Health officials in Arizona on Sunday reported 1,075 new confirmed COVID-19 cases and 13 deaths as the state’s death toll from the recently slowing coronavirus outbreak approached 16,000.

The latest figures reported by the state Department of Health Services increased Arizona’s pandemic totals to 816,782 confirmed cases and 15,980.
