There are 77 more confirmed coronavirus cases in Iowa and three more deaths reported today, according to the Iowa Department of Public Health.

The number of new day-to-day cases is significantly lower than recent days, but state health officials are switching to a new timeline for their reports, and "today’s results do not reflect a complete 24-hour cycle of testing," the department said.
