Navajo Nation Reports 1,637 Coronavirus Cases, 59 Deaths
WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) — Health officials said the Navajo Nation has 97 new cases of coronavirus and another death.
The Navajo Department of Health said there are 1,637 known coronavirus infections across the reservation as of Saturday evening and 59 people have died.
The numbers don’t include cases from towns that border the vast reservation that spans parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. Updated totals of cases and deaths are expected Sunday afternoon.
Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez said the big increase in cases is partially due to increased testing.
To date, there were a total of 7,393 negative test results.
