1,401 New COVID-19 Cases In Oklahoma Break Another Record

Jul 27, 2020

Oklahoma health officials report new cases of COVID-19 increased by 1,401 on Monday. That's nearly a four and a half percent increase in total reported cases, with the state's total now at 32,686.

Monday's new cases are the state's largest single-day increase in cases of the virus, beating out the previous day's record. The state had reported 1,714 new cases last week 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 7,253 new cases of the coronavirus in the past seven days, an average of 1,036 per day.

25,252 people — more than 77 percent of the total cases — have since been classified as having recovered from the virus.

There are 6,938 active cases in the state. Oklahoma County has the most active cases with 1,789, followed by Tulsa County with 1,430, Cleveland County with 433, Rogers County with 216, Canadian County with 190, Jackson County with 182, McCurtain County with 141, Okmulgee County with 118, Garfield County with 115, Wagoner County with 112 and Creek County with 104.
