Officials: 895 new COVID-19 cases reported in Oklahoma

Local

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Health officials say the number of COVID-19 cases in Oklahoma climbed by a little less than 900.

On Thursday, data from the Oklahoma State Department of Health shows that the state has had 426,641 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since March of 2020.

That’s an increase of 895 cases or a 0.2% increase.

There were no additional deaths reported on the daily report. However, state health officials say they are now including the CDC’s number of COVID-19 deaths as a provisional count.

As a result of that inclusion, the deaths jumped to 7,122, compared to the 4,534 reported by the health department.

Coronavirus representation

In all, officials believe there are 12,379 active cases of COVID-19 across Oklahoma.

According to health department data on Thursday, officials believe 409,728 Oklahomans have recovered from the virus.

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.
