Missouri topped its daily high for new COVID-19 cases Tuesday for the ninth time this month, adding 1,773 cases and raising the death toll by 12. 

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has attributed daily spikes in cases to backlogs in entering test results into state databases as testing and cases have increased, but the state's 7-day average for daily cases, which can flatten spikes, has also significantly increased this month.

Missouri is averaging 1,437 new cases announced a day this week compared with 848 the week before and 437 at the beginning of July. Tuesday's count of 1,773 new cases topped the previous high on Friday of 1,652. 

Missouri has reported 44,823 confirmed cases and 1,213 COVID-19 deaths since the start of the pandemic.
