Nevada officials reported 1,536 additional coronavirus cases in the state on Friday — the smallest increase in 13 days.
However, six counties had not reported increased cases by late Friday morning: Washoe, Nye and the Quad-County region of Carson City and Douglas, Lyon and Storey counties.
The updated figures posted to the state’s coronavirus website brought the state’s number of cases since the pandemic began to 146,317. Nevada had reported more than 2,000 cases in seven of the past eight days.
The Department of Health and Human Services also reported two new fatalities, raising the number of deaths to 2,095.
Case totals and positivity rates have been increasing since mid-September, and the number of weekly deaths has increased in November compared with last month, state data shows.
The seven-day average of new cases reported remained above 2,000 on Friday — more than twice the average reported in the beginning of November.
The state’s positivity rate, calculated by the Review-Journal as the number of cases divided by people tested since the start of the pandemic, reached 15.15 percent on Friday, an increase of 0.06 percentage points from the previous day.
The state health department calculates a positivity rate over a two-week period, and the rate had decreased by 0.1 percentage point on Wednesday, reaching 16.5 percent, where it has remained since.
Clark County reported 1,409 new cases reported on Friday, according to the Southern Nevada Health District.
No additional deaths were reported, so the total fatalities in the county throughout the pandemic remained at 1,735. The total number of cases rose to 112,894.
