DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa health officials reported 348 coronavirus cases and one new death linked to COVID-19 on Sunday, but hospitalizations remained at a low level statewide.

As of Sunday morning, the state was reporting 336,311 cases of the virus and 5,471 deaths since the pandemic began.

The number of people hospitalized with the virus across the state crept up Sunday to 196 from Saturday’s 181, but that total remains well below the November peak of more than 1,500 patients.

Iowa officials said 169,617 people have now received both required doses of a coronavirus vaccine in the state.
