CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - State health officials on Sunday reported 385 new positive COVID-19 cases in Nevada along with three additional deaths.

That increases the statewide totals to 75,804 cases and 1,531 deaths since the pandemic began.

Nevada Department of Health Services officials also said of the nearly 76,000 cases, more than 64,000 of them have been in Clark County.

Johns Hopkins University data analyzed by The Associated Press showed that seven-day rolling averages of daily new cases and deaths in Nevada declined over the past two weeks.

The number of infections is thought to be far higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

But for some - especially older adults and people with existing health problems - it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.
