Lancaster County confirmed 104 more coronavirus cases but no new deaths Thursday, according to the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department.
The newly reported cases pushed the pandemic total to 4,804 and come as testing at two Lincoln prisons this week returned 97 new cases.
Many of the new cases reported Thursday stemmed from a technical glitch in reporting the results of Test Nebraska samples from last week caused some tests to be delayed, the Health Department said in a news release.
The Health Department’s data dashboard attributed 37 cases to Thursday and 197 cases to Tuesday, a day when over 3,200 test results poured in after the glitch was resolved.
Thus far this week, the county has confirmed 345 cases.
Last week, the county confirmed 476 cases, the most positive results it has seen during the entire pandemic.
On Thursday, 27 people remained hospitalized, but only 10 were Lancaster County residents.
