Arizona reported more than 3,400 new COVID-19 cases and 43 new known deaths on Saturday as hospitalizations for the disease continued to rise to their highest levels since August.

The ongoing increase in cases and hospitalizations comes as Arizona’s health system is preparing for the pressures of a new COVID-19 wave as the situation worsens and as Thanksgiving approaches.

Identified COVID-19 cases in Arizona rose by 3,476 on Saturday to 273,053, and known deaths were at 6,300, according to the daily report from the Arizona Department of Health Services. 

New cases have eclipsed 1,000 for 17 of the past 21 days, with six of those days seeing more than 2,000 new cases for the first times since the state’s summer surge. Saturday marked the third time the state has reported more than 3,000 new cases in a day since late July. The U.S. has been reporting record-high daily new cases.
