Nevada health officials on Monday reported 994 new coronavirus cases and 15 new deaths.

The state has now seen in total 51,199 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 847 known deaths since the pandemic began.

According to the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, the average number of new confirmed cases daily over the past two weeks has remained fairly constant.

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.

Restrictions remain in Nevada for businesses and on gatherings of more than 50 people after Gov. Steve Sisolak extended them beyond July when they were set to expire.

For most people, COVID-19 causes mild or moderate fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

Some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, can face severe illness including pneumonia and death. The vast majority recover.
