Oklahoma COVID-19 Update for 7 November 2020

Mike Seals - November 8, 2020 9:19 pm


In addition to significant community spread, included in today’s numbers is a backlog resulting from the continued transition from a manual to electronic reporting system at several labs across the state. Today’s number likely also contains some duplicated cases, which will be corrected in tomorrow’s numbers. We have reason to believe that our normal case count would have continued on an upward trajectory without the backlog and duplication.

As of this advisory, there are 136,492 cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma.

Kay County is reporting a cumulative total of 1,077 confirmed cases, with 17 deaths.

Osage County has had a total of 1,515, also with 17 deaths.

There are 1,438 total deaths in the state.

  • There are 9 additional deaths identified to report. None were identified in the past 24 hours.
    • One in Cleveland County, one male in the 65 or older age group.
    • One in Garfield County, one male in the 65 or older age group.
    • One in Jackson County, one female in the 65 or older age group.
