Health officials: 6 more COVID-19 deaths reported in Iowa

DES MOINES (AP) — Six more people have died in Iowa from COVID-19, state health officials reported Saturday.

As of Saturday afternoon, the toll for coronavirus-related deaths reached 748 in Iowa, health officials reported on their website.

The state also reported 34,647 confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Officials suspect the actual number of people with COVID-19 is much higher than the state-released statistics indicate because many people with mild or no symptoms do not get tested.
