Coronavirus

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – There are 6,257 new cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma, as well as 13 additional deaths related to the virus, according to the latest report from the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

It should be noted that the latest numbers account for a two-day span of data due to the holiday.

OSDH said the following in an update released Wednesday:

“Out of respect for our OSDH personnel who have worked tirelessly since March in response to the COVID pandemic, we will not be reporting data on Thanksgiving day. This will allow these employees to enjoy the Holiday with their family. There will be no updating of dashboard data, nor an Executive Order report on Thursday November 26th. Dashboard data will be updated at approximately 11:00 AM on Friday November 27th. The Alert System map will be published on November 27th, as well. The Executive Order report will resume weekday reporting on Monday November 30th. It is important to note that Friday’s updated data will include cases that would have otherwise been reported on Thursday. Saturday’s dashboard update will include case information that reflect a combined reporting from Friday and Saturday. Subsequent reporting will return to normal cadence.”

In total, there have been 193,824 cases of coronavirus in Oklahoma since the pandemic began in March. There are currently 32,213 active cases in the state.

The total virus death toll in Oklahoma now stands at 1,717.

Recoveries from the virus in Oklahoma have increased by 6,925. The total number of recoveries is now 159,894.

According to health department data on Thursday, officials believe 152,969 Oklahomans have recovered from the virus.

Although the CDC recommends patients be tested twice to determine if they have recovered, health department officials say they are preserving tests for patients who are sick.

Instead, the Oklahoma State Department of Health identifies a person as recovered if they are currently not hospitalized or deceased and it has been 14 days since the onset of their symptoms or since they were diagnosed.

University of Hong Kong scientists claim to have the first evidence of someone being reinfected with the virus that causes COVID-19. They said Monday, Aug. 24, 2020 that genetic tests show a 33-year-old man returning to Hong Kong from a trip to Spain in mid-August had a different strain of the coronavirus than the one he’d previously been infected with in March.

State officials urge Oklahomans to stay away from ill patients and to frequently wash their hands. Also, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

At this point, Americans are urged to practice ‘social distancing’ by staying in their homes as much as possible and not going out into a crowd.

The virus is mainly spread from person-to-person, and symptoms usually appear two to 14 days after exposure. Officials stress that the most common symptoms are fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

If you do become sick, you are asked to stay away from others. If you have been in an area where the coronavirus is known to be spreading or been around a COVID-19 patient and develop symptoms, you are asked to call your doctor ahead of time and warn them that you might have been exposed to the virus. That way, experts say, they have the ability to take extra precautions to protect staff and other patients.
