Oklahoma Sees Biggest Single-Day Increase In COVID-19 Cases With 1,204

Oklahoma health officials report new cases of COVID-19 increased by 1,204 on Sunday. That's a four percent increase in total reported cases, with the state's total now at 31,285.
Sunday's new cases are the state's largest single-day increase in cases of the virus. On Tuesday, the state reported 1,714 but those numbers included new cases and a backlog of cases from the prior weekend. The backlog was due to a system crash which has since been resolved.

No new deaths were reported, as the state's death toll remains flat at 496.

*Note: weekend reporting of cases and deaths is typically very low compared to weekdays.

Oklahoma has totaled 6,020 new cases of the coronavirus in the past seven days, an average of 860 per day.
