Navajo Nation health officials report no new confirmed cases of coronavirus but four additional deaths.

The latest numbers released Tuesday increases the total number of people infected to 9,903 with 527 known death. Tribal health officials say the case total includes two previously unreported positive cases from July. They say 97,644 people have been tested for COVID-19 and 7,157 have recovered. Officials reported one new coronavirus case Monday and no additional deaths. Much of the Navajo Nation has been closed since March as the coronavirus swept through the vast reservation that extends into New Mexico, Utah and Arizona.
