The state Department of Health and Human Services said Sunday that the number of deaths linked to the coronavirus in Nebraska remained at 284.

State officials said 43% of Nebraska’s hospital beds, 53% of the intensive care beds and 81 percent of the ventilators in the state remained available Sunday. A total of 109 people in the state were hospitalized Sunday with COVID-19.
