Nevada Reports 227 New COVID-19 Cases And 1 Additional Death

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Health officials in Nevada on Sunday reported 227 new confirmed COVID-19 cases with one more death.

The latest numbers increased the state's pandemic totals to 301,178 cases and 5,172 known deaths, according to the state's coronavirus dashboard.

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.
