OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – There are 44 additional COVID-19-related deaths and over 4,100 new COVID cases in Oklahoma, according to the Oklahoma State Department of Health.
OSDH reported 4,157 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday, a 1.1 percent increase, bringing the total number of cases since March to 370,149.
The 44 additional COVID-19-related deaths bring the total number of COVID deaths in Oklahoma since March to 3,231.
OSDH officials have not released the latest number of COVID-19 hospitalizations in Oklahoma, but officials reported on Friday that there were 1,634 people in hospitals across Oklahoma with a confirmed case of COVID-19 as of Friday.
There are 32,275 active COVID-19 cases in Oklahoma, 52 less than there were on Friday, a .2 percent percent decrease.
OSDH reports that 334,643 people have recovered from COVID-19 since March.
Although the CDC recommends patients be tested twice to determine if they have recovered, health department officials say they are preserving tests for patients who are sick.
Instead, the Oklahoma State Department of Health identifies a person as recovered if they are currently not hospitalized or deceased and it has been 14 days since the onset of their symptoms or since they were diagnosed.
