PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota health officials reported Sunday the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the state has risen to 90.

The South Dakota Department of Health reports 22 new, confirmed cases of the new coronavirus. On Saturday, the total of confirmed cases in South Dakota was 68.

Minnehaha County, the state’s most populous county, has 25 cases, an increase of four from Saturday. Beadle County has 20 confirmed cases, up from four the day before.

One death has been reported in South Dakota from the disease. The number of people who have recovered from the disease in South Dakota has risen to 29. A total of 3,127 people have tested negative for the disease at the South Dakota Public Health Laboratory or at private health labs, and results of one test are pending at the South Dakota Public Health Lab.
