Utah saw its highest number of COVID-19 cases this weekend, and a Wasatch County man is among the recent deaths reported due to the virus.

On Saturday, the Utah Department of Health reported 643 new cases, topping the old record set just the day before on Friday, which was 586.  State epidemiologist Dr. Angela Dunn released a statement Saturday saying the number of new cases in Utah is “sobering.”  She noted that for three straight weeks the cases in Utah have been increasing at a rate that is not sustainable, and the state is at risk for overwhelming its hospital capacity.
