CARSON CITY (AP) — After reporting record numbers of new confirmed cases for two consecutive days, Nevada health officials reported 1,177 new COVID-19 cases Sunday with one additional death.

The latest figures increased the state's totals to 120,183 cases and 1,909 known deaths since the pandemic began.

Nevada had reported 1,857 new confirmed cases Friday, surpassing the previous record of 1,824 cases reported Nov. 7.

On Saturday, state health officials reported a record 2,269 cases.

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.
