Nevada Breaks Record For Most Cases Reported In Single Day

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada officials are reporting the most new coronavirus cases in a single day since the start of the pandemic.

State officials on Thursday reported 3,402 new confirmed virus cases, bringing the statewide total to 240,795 cases.

Nevada COVID-19 response director Caleb Cage anticipated the spike earlier in the week and said it mirrored other post-holiday spikes the state has experienced.

Nevada has consistently rewritten its record books for coronavirus cases, deaths and hospitalizations throughout the months-long surge that has spared no county, rural or urban.

Gov. Steve Sisolak's tightened restrictions on business capacity and private gatherings are set to expire on Jan. 15, unless he extends them.
