WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) — Navajo Nation health officials on Wednesday reported 169 new COVID-19 cases and five more deaths from the coronavirus outbreak.

The additional cases and deaths increased the pandemic’s totals for the tribe’s reservation to 25,746 cases and 879 known deaths.

The number of infections is thought to be far higher than reported because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.

The tribe’s vast reservation includes parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.
