Nevada reports 2,135 additional COVID-19 cases, 21 deaths Friday

The Associated Press

Nevada reported 2,315 additional known COVID-19 cases on Friday along with 21 more deaths from the coronavirus outbreak as the state’s totals since the pandemic began increased to 227,046 cases and 3,146 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 dropped over the past two weeks, according to data from Johns Hopkins University and The COVID Tracking Project.



The rolling average of daily new cases declined from 2,550.3 on Dec. 17 to 1,788.6 on Thursday while the rolling average of daily deaths sent from 34.1 to 29.9.

For most people, the virus causes mild or moderate symptoms for up to three weeks. Older adults and people with existing health problems can face severe illness and death. However, the vast majority of people recover.
