OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The number of newly reported coronavirus cases in Oklahoma has topped 1,000 for a third consecutive day and the seven-day average of new cases has nearly quintupled in less than a month.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health on Friday reported 1,194 new cases for a total of 471,176 cases since the pandemic began.

The department reported a seven-day average of 938 cases compared to a seven-day average of 196 on June 25th.

The number of hospitalizations reached 495 and health officials have estimated about 90% of those who are hospitalized are unvaccinated.

The reported number of active cases in Kay County was at 12 this time last week. This week that number has risen to 44.
