Nevada Reports Single Largest Day Increase Of Virus Cases

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada is reporting its single largest day increase of new cases of the coronavirus after the governor announced he would hold off on easing any more restrictions.

Health officials reported Tuesday that 379 cases were reported statewide Monday. Before that, the largest one-day increase was 295 cases on May 22.

The state Department of Health and Human Services said the increase can be partially attributed to delayed reporting from the weekend but also is part of an upward trend of new cases the state has seen in the last three weeks.
