Clark County Public Health reported 47 new COVID-19 cases and three new deaths Friday afternoon.
Two of the deaths are confirmed and one is suspected. A confirmed death means COVID-19 is listed as cause of death or contributing factor on the death certificate and the patient had a positive COVID-19 test, according to Public Health. A suspected death means COVID-19 is not listed as a contributing factor on the death certificate but wasn’t ruled out as cause of death and the person died after testing positive for COVID-19 within the previous 28 days.
The confirmed deaths were a man and a woman in their 70s with underlying health conditions. The suspected death was a woman older than 80, who had underlying health conditions.
One previously announced death was removed from Clark County’s total after Public Health confirmed the man was a resident of another state.
