Nevada Reports 1,221 New Coronavirus Cases, 5 More Deaths

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada officials reported 1,221 new coronavirus cases and 5 new deaths on Monday.

The state has reported 262,794 confirmed cases and 3,779 deaths since the start of the pandemic.

The single-day increases were notably less compared to spikes reported earlier in January, but officials have cautioned against drawing conclusions from single-day data and say reporting delays over weekends and holidays are normal and expected.
