143 Deaths, 2,680 Positive COVID-19 Cases In Oklahoma

Apr 20, 2020

Three more Oklahomans have died due to COVID-19, increasing the state's death toll to 143. The deaths reported Monday include:

  • Two in Cleveland County, both males in the 65 and older age group.
  • One in Caddo County, a male in the 50-64 age group.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health confirmed that positive cases of the coronavirus in the state now stand at 2,680, an increase of 81 cases from Sunday. That's a three percent increase in total cases.

To address testing availability in the Tulsa area, two new COVID-19 testing sites are open in the area. The mobile testing sites are a result of partnerships between the state and Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma.

Health officials say they have partnered with the Choctaw Nation to open a drive-thru testing site in McAlester. The state entered a similar partnership with the Chickasaw Nation last week. A full list of testing sites in the state can be found at coronavirus.health.ok.gov/drive-thru-testing.
