Nevada health officials say the state saw a record spike in single-day confirmed deaths from COVID-19.
The state Department of Health and Human Services said Friday Nevada saw 29 additional fatalities from the novel coronavirus — the largest since the outbreak began — and recorded 1,264 new cases.
That moves the case total for Nevada to 48,088 and the death toll to 830.
The agency also reported a net increase of 14 hospitalizations of confirmed and suspected COVID-19 cases to a total of 1,159.
That is just one below the highest total of 1,160 recorded in the state’s hospitalization database for July 23.
