NEWS on COVID-19 in Arizona: Medical experts call for partial shutdown in Arizona as COVID-19 cases surge

“Anyone who thinks they may have been exposed to COVID-19 over the Thanksgiving holiday is urged to get tested now.

It takes five to seven days for COVID-19 to be detected by tests. Dec. 1 marks five days since Thanksgiving, and the lines to get tested have been long at one site.

According to Valley healthcare providers, they are already treating COVID-19 patients who say they were infected after attending Thanksgiving gatherings.

‘Yesterday, I had probably my first case of a Thanksgiving exposure, and that person ended up being positive,’ said Dr. Andrew Carroll. ‘This morning, I saw a couple who had an infant as well, saying they were exposed at Thanksgiving as well.’

Dr. Carroll believes Arizona is on track for a surge much worse than what the state saw over the summer.

‘I think we’re going to start to see counts up to 5,000 to 7,000 every day of new cases,’ said Dr. Carroll.

Dr. Carroll says right now, those who were infected over Thanksgiving but are asymptomatic are unwittingly spreading the virus.”
