The Southern Nevada Health District’s Daily Aggregate Reports have been revised to include rates. Today’s report also includes a revised estimate of recovered patients. The revised number is based on more accurate estimates of current hospitalizations after discovering the reporting system was inflating completed discharge dates in some instances.
The Health District has also implemented a COVID-19 Dashboard that is now available on its website. The updated reports and dashboard are available at https://www.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/coronavirus#cases.
The Southern Nevada Health District serves as the local public health authority for Clark County, Boulder City, Henderson, Las Vegas, Mesquite and North Las Vegas. The agency safeguards the public health of the community’s residents and visitors through innovative programs, regulations, and initiatives focused on protecting and promoting their health and well-being.
