State’s hospi­tals brace for surge

San Francisco Chronicle - - CORONAVIRU­S PANDEMIC -

Some Ari­zona hospi­tals have be­gun ac­ti­vat­ing surge plans to in­crease their ca­pac­ity to treat coro­n­avirus pa­tients as con­firmed cases rise and more peo­ple seek treat­ment.

The state has recorded more than 70,100 cases, with 1,580 deaths as of Sunday.

Ari­zona be­came a hot spot after Repub­li­can Gov. Doug Ducey lifted stay­home or­ders last month.
