Oklahoma Hits 7,150 Cases of COVID-19, 348 Dead

Jun 7, 2020

The Oklahoma State Department of Health reported another 147 cases of COVID-19 and three deaths over the weekend.

The state now has 7,150 total cases of the illness caused by the coronavirus, and 348 people have died. The seven-day average of new cases has climbed from 65.4 just over a week ago to 92 as of Sunday, according to Oklahoma Watch.

The number of patients considered to have recovered was not available Sunday because of problems with the state health department's coronavirus website.

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.
