The pace of hospitalizations in Maricopa County due to COVID-19 is slowing down, and officials say it’s more important than ever to keep practicing social distancing.

Data from the county’s Department of Public Health shows the pace of hospitalizations due to COVID-19 infections has slowed in recent days from a high at the end of March.

“When we look at the hospitalization epidemiology curve, we can see that the number of new severe COVID-19 cases is not growing as rapidly as it was several weeks ago,” Dr. Rebecca Sunenshine, medical director for disease control for the agency, said in a media statement. “This tells us that, while the number of severe cases is still increasing, we have started to flatten the curve in Maricopa County.”
