The Hill reports:
Arizona health officials reported yet another record number of coronavirus cases on Tuesday, the same day President Trump is traveling to the state to visit the nation’s southern border and speak at a rally.
The Arizona Department of Health Services reported 3,591 new COVID-19 cases and 42 related deaths. The state previously had its highest number of cases last Thursday and added more than 1,000 cases in three of the last four days, nearly doubling its case count from last week.
Hospitalizations have exceeded 2,000 for the first time amid the pandemic, with 2,136 beds occupied by suspected and confirmed COVID-19 patients on Monday, compared with 1,992 the previous day.
Millions of Americans think #Trump is correct in asserting that there are more #COVID19 cases being detected now because there’s “too much testing.”
But this trend chart @StevenTDennis tweeted isn’t “cases” — it’s Arizona hospitalizations. This is illness, skyrocketing. pic.twitter.com/XTCPz8q8tn
