OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma on Friday reported 526 additional cases of the coronavirus and three more deaths.
The Oklahoma Department of Health said Friday that the total number of confirmed cases in the state so far is at 15,065 and there have been 398 deaths from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.
The actual number of cases is believed to be far higher, but many people haven’t been tested and some who get the disease don’t show symptoms.
The department says 11,519 Oklahomans have recovered from the virus.
For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms that clear up within weeks. But for others, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, the highly contagious virus can cause severe symptoms and be fatal. The vast majority of people recover.
