Oklahoma COVID-19 Update for 4 December, 2020

Mike Seals - December 4, 2020 10:51 am

SITUATION UPDATE: COVID-19

The sharp increase in new cases reported today (4,827) is largely attributable to an issue with the PHIDDO reporting system, which resulted in a number of cases being backlogged until today. After further review, the case level should have been reported as roughly 3,000 cases per day on 12/2, 12/3 and 12/4.

Of the 4,827 cases reported today:

  • 98% had a specimen collection date of 11/19 or more recent
  • 86% were collected this week
  • 11% were collected last week
  • 2.6% were collected prior to 11/22

This week, 76 Oklahoma counties are in the “orange” risk level for the COVID-19 Risk Level System. OSDH continues to monitor closely the statewide hospitalization trends for COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Risk Level System will be updated every Friday in the Situation Update at 11:00 a.m. This week’s map can be seen in this update below the test results chart.

As OSDH continues to meet with stakeholders across the state, the COVID-19 Risk Level System is subject to further revisions as science and public health guidance advances with the ongoing pandemic.

As of this advisory, there are 208,875 cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma.
