OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma reported more than 550 new coronavirus cases Monday as daily cases of the illness continued the upward trend they’ve charted over the past two weeks.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health said the state recorded 557 cases of COVID-19 on Monday, bringing the total number of cases since the pandemic began to 466,733.

The rolling average number of daily cases over the past two weeks has increased by 336, according to researchers at Johns Hopkins University. Oklahoma has seen about 155 cases per 100,000 people in the past two weeks, which ranks 11th in the country for per capita cases.

According to Johns Hopkins, about 46.2% of Oklahomans have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while 39.5% of the population is fully vaccinated.
