Oklahoma Reported a New Daily Record of Confirmed Coronavirus Cases

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma health officials reported a new daily record of confirmed coronavirus cases on Tuesday, with 858 reported in the last 24 hours.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health also reported five additional deaths from COVID-19, bringing the statewide death toll to 404.

Oklahoma has been experiencing a surge in hospitalizations due to the coronavirus, with 426 people currently hospitalized because of the disease, an increase of more than 100 from the same time last week, according to health department figures.

The latest data brings the total number of confirmed positive cases for coronavirus in Oklahoma to 17,220.

Meanwhile, New York officials added Oklahoma to the list of states required to quarantine for 14 days because of the surge.

The previous daily high for Oklahoma was 585, which was reported last week. Gov. Kevin Stitt said at the time the state was a “long ways away” from reintroducing restrictions that might harm the economy.
