Jul 5, 2020

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma on Sunday reported an additional 283 confirmed coronavirus cases.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health said that the additional cases bring the state’s total to 15,928. 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.

Oklahoma reported no additional deaths on Sunday. The state’s total number of reported deaths from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, remained at 398.

The department says 12,246 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.
