LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Southern Nevada Health District has updated the latest number of cases in Clark County and are noting that there are 126 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 2 deaths.

In a press conference on Friday, SNHD described details about the growing number of cases in the valley.


The second death patient was described as a woman in her 60s. Officials say she did have underlying health issues.

Officials also mentioned during the press conference that they would provide daily updates on the SNHD website. They say the updates will come around 3 p.m. and should provide breakdowns of the cases of COVID-19 in the valley.

Officials aired their frustrations about test kits in the valley, saying they have not received what they were promised. It had been SNHD’s understanding that a large shipment of test kits was to arrive in Las Vegas, but they still have not. When pressed by reporters, officials only referred to FEMA, suing that was in their hands.
