Clark County recorded 33 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday and two new deaths as local disease activity continues to decline, according to Clark County Public Health.
The fatalities were both women in their 50s with underlying health conditions, according to Public Health data. Their deaths bring the total deaths from COVID-19 in Clark County to 276 to date. Deaths are added to the county’s total 10 to 12 days after they occur. Three deaths have been recorded this week, compared with two last week and seven the week before.
The new cases include 21 that were confirmed using molecular PCR testing, for 23,911 cases to date, and 12 probable cases diagnosed using antigen testing, for 1,453 cases to date, according to Public Health data.
The new numbers put the county’s average at about 49 new cases a day since Friday, down from about 68 cases a day in the seven days ending May 28. Data from last week was skewed by an accounting change and discovery of previously unrecorded cases.
The number of active cases, counting both confirmed and probable cases still in isolation, fell to 427 on Wednesday, down from 441 on Tuesday, according to Public Health data.
