Navajo Nation: No new COVID-19 deaths for 7th day in a row

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — Navajo Nation health officials on Monday reported 63 new confirmed cases of COVID-19, but no additional deaths for the seventh consecutive day.

The latest figures bring the total number of cases to 11,362 which includes one delayed reported case. The known death toll remains at 574.

Tribal health officials said 121,827 people on the vast reservation that covers parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah have been tested for COVID-19 since the pandemic started and 7,497 have recovered.

A shelter-in-place order, mask mandate, daily curfews and weekend lockdowns remain in effect on the Navajo Nation.

Most people experience mild or moderate symptoms with the coronavirus, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

But for some — especially older adults and people with existing health problems — it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.
