Coronavirus

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (KFOR) – Oklahoma health officials say the novel coronavirus is continuing to spread across the state. One person has died in Sequoyah County from COVID-19.

On Saturday morning, data from the Oklahoma State Department of Health shows that the state currently has 377 confirmed cases of COVID-19.

New counties with cases include LeFlore and Nowata counties. These counties will now be required to come into compliance with Governor Kevin Stitt’s “Safer at Home” executive order that calls for non-essential businesses in counties with COVID-19 cases to temporarily suspend services until April 16.

There are an additional 7 deaths in Oklahoma:

  • Two in Cleveland County: a male and female, both over age 65
  • Two in Tulsa County: a male and female, both over age 65
  • One in Oklahoma County: a female over age 65
  • One in Sequoyah County: a female in the 50-64 age group
  • One in Wagoner County: a female over age 65

There are 15 total deaths in the state.

On Thursday, COVID-19 testing supplies arrived in Oklahoma that will allow for 10,000 individuals to be tested in the coming weeks.

Oklahoma State University (OSU) is bringing online lab capabilities by early next week that will allow the State, as a whole, to process roughly 2,800 COVID-19 tests a day.

The University of Oklahoma is continuing to partner with the State to expand and bring online capabilities to process a significant number of COVID-19 tests in the coming weeks.
