Nebraska to resume publicly reporting coronavirus statistics

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Two weeks after Nebraska quit publicly reporting daily coronavirus statistics, the state is developing a new website to provide weekly updates.

It wasn't immediately clear Wednesday what numbers will be included on the new site, or when it will be ready.

The state's decision to stop providing daily COVID-19 updates was widely criticized by health experts who use the data to track the virus's spread.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services says the state's new website will be updated on Wednesdays.
