PHOENIX — Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego is pointing to a "crisis" involving coronavirus testing shortages in her city due to surging cases in Arizona, which leads the U.S. in new coronavirus cases per capita.
Gallego, a Democrat, said some residents over the weekend had to line up for eight hours by car to get tested.
Gallego told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that Arizona went from "zero to 60" by being one of the first states to reopen after it was among the last to implement stay-at-home orders.
Arizona health officials reported 3,536 additional coronavirus cases Sunday and four more known deaths.
That brings the state's documented totals to 98,089 confirmed cases of COVID-19 cases and 1,809 known deaths.
