Those tests include polymerase chain reaction, known as PCR, tests and antigen tests. The PCR test determines an active case of COVID-19, the other kind of testing data the state tracks is related to serology—or antibody—tests, which determines if a person has been infected in the past with the virus. Antigen tests "may not be as accurate or able to run as many patient samples per day, however, the quick results provide the ability to rapidly triage and make decisions," according to ADHS.

The county also reported one new deaths Oct. 22, bringing the county's death toll to 3,534, according to data from the Maricopa County Department of Public Health.

Of the county's 3,534 known deaths, 1,232 are tied to long-term care facilities, making up 34.86% of the county's total COVID-19-related deaths.






The state and county also track hospitalization data. In Maricopa County, 9% of the county's total cases resulted in hospitalization as of Oct. 22. The county tracks intensive care unit, or ICU, data separately, and 1% of the county's total cases have resulted in admittance to the ICU.
