CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada on Saturday reported 1,825 additional known COVID-19 cases and five more deaths, increasing the statewide tallies since the start of the pandemic to 228,871 cases and 3,151 deaths.

Seven-day rolling averages of daily new cases and daily deaths in Nevada both decreased over the past two weeks, according to data from Johns Hopkins University and The COVID Tracking Project.

The rolling average of daily new cases dropped from 2,563.9 on Dec. 18 to 1,854.6 on Friday while the rolling average of daily deaths declined from 32.7 to 29.

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

For most people, the virus causes mild or moderate symptoms for up to three weeks. Older adults and people with existing health problems can face severe illness and death. However, the vast majority of people recover.
