LAS VEGAS — Health officials in Nevada on Sunday reported 651 new COVID-19 cases and 24 additional deaths.
The numbers increasing the state's totals to 284,042 cases and 4,520 known deaths since the pandemic started.
Nevada's Department of Health and Human Services statistics show that Clark County had 561 of the new cases and 20 of the deaths.
The state's largest county has had 208,739 of Nevada's total pandemic cases and 3,473 of the deaths.
The number of infections is thought to be far higher than reported because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.
Seven-day rolling averages of daily new cases and daily deaths in Nevada decreased over the past two weeks, according to data from The COVID Tracking Project.
The rolling average of daily new cases dropped from 1,451.7 on Jan. 22 to 887.7 on Friday while the rolling average of daily deaths dropped slightly from 37.1 to 35 during the same period.
