In Another New High, Oklahoma Reports 450 New Coronavirus Cases

Jun 18, 2020

Oklahoma health officials report 450 new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed on Thursday, representing another new high in single-day infections. The data was released late Thursday afternoon, after a significant delay the Oklahoma State Department of Health classified as "technical difficulties."

Two more Oklahomans have died due to COVID-19, increasing the state's death toll to 366. No details were released on the deaths.

The 450 case increase since Wednesday means the total positive cases of the coronavirus in the state now stand at 9,354. That's a five percent increase in total reported cases.

Oklahoma has totaled 1,728 new cases of the coronavirus in the past seven days, an average of 247 per day.

Oklahoma has seen 2,848 new coronavirus cases so far this month. That's 103% of the number of cases the state saw in May (2,758) and 98% of the number of cases it saw in April (2,899).

7,071 people — more than 75 percent of the total cases — have since been classified as having recovered from the virus. 197 Oklahomans are currently hospitalized as either confirmed positive COVID-19 cases or under investigation for the virus.

There are 1,917 active cases in the state.
