OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — There are 4,370 newly reported virus cases in Oklahoma and the seven-day rolling average of new cases has topped 3,000.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health on Saturday reported a total of 213,245 cases since the pandemic began. Data from Johns Hopkins University shows the rolling average of new cases in the state rose from 2,843 per day on Nov. 20 to 3,044 on Friday. The health department reported 14 additional deaths due to COVID-19 for a total of 1,874.

The true number of infections in Oklahoma is likely higher because many haven’t been tested, and studies indicate that people can be infected and spread the virus while not feeling sick.
