Oklahoma is in the red zone for new COVID-19 cases, positive test rate, and deaths per capita, according to the latest White House Coronavirus Task Force report.
Hospitals statewide are under record strain. The number of patients surpassed 1,000 for the first time ever Tuesday night, according to the state health department.
In an interview on KRMG radio this week, Gov. Kevin Stitt said the hospital system is in solid shape.
"There’s a lot of folks that are fear mongering and telling Oklahomans we don’t have the hospital capacity. Simply not true," Stitt said.
