Navajo Nation Reports 157 New COVID-19 Cases, No New Deaths
WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) — The Navajo Nation has reported 157 new coronavirus cases but no additional related deaths.
The latest figures reported Wednesday by the Navajo Department of Health bring the total number of cases on the reservation that extends into Arizona, New Mexico and Utah to 21,513.
The death toll from the pandemic remains at 755. The Navajo Nation remains in a three-week lockdown requiring all residents to stay home except for emergencies, shopping for essentials like food and medicine or traveling to an essential job.
Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez says residents must not become complacent just because frontline health care workers on the reservation have started receiving recently approved vaccines.
