Arizona has reached another sad milestone in the pandemic. 20,000 Arizonans have now died from COVID-19. 

More than 1,000 Arizonans died from COVID-19 just in the month of September. That's nearly double the number lost in August.

Recently, Arizona has been reporting about 40 deaths per day. That daily average climbed throughout the summer, but now appears to be trending downward.

Overall, about one in every 360 Arizonans has died from COVID-19. That rate remains among the highest in the country.
