Updated June 7, 2020 - 11:43 pm

Clark County recorded 152 new COVID-19 cases and one additional death as of Sunday morning, according to the Southern Nevada Health District.

The new data brings the total number of cases in the county to 7,483, with 359 deaths.

Health district staffers redistribute the cases and deaths after they are reported to better reflect when they occurred. As a result, the totals announced daily generally don’t match the detailed breakdown by date that the district provides.

Data from the health district shows that 5,727 people in Clark County have recovered from the virus.

On Sunday morning, the Department of Health and Human Services reported 189 new cases statewide, bringing the total number of cases in the state to 9,649 with 438 deaths, according to nvhealthresponse.nv.gov.

A separate count based on data from individual counties and health officials show 9,677 cases in the state, and an estimated 7,189 people who have recovered. Data from the state often varies from individual counties due to different reporting cycles.

As of Sunday, 201,608 people have been tested in Nevada, representing an infection rate of about 5.5 percent, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.
