LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada health officials say the state has 931 new confirmed cases of COVID-19, bringing the state to 41,816.

State data released Saturday by the Department of Health and Human Services also showed 10 new deaths from the novel coronavirus. That brings the total number of deaths to 732.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the state infection rate, or the total number of people tested divided by the number of confirmed cases, increased marginally to 9.75 percent after continually rising since June 17.

Hospitalization rates decreased slightly to 1,147 confirmed and suspected patients from the 1,160 reported in Friday’s update.

State data also showed 786 new cases in Clark County, pushing the county total to 35,786. This is well below the county’s average daily increase of about 949 over the preceding week.
