OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma State Department of Health says the number of reported coronavirus cases in the state has surpassed 30,000 and nearly 500 have died due to COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus. The health department on Saturday reported 965 newly confirmed cases to bring the total reported to 30,081 and 12 additional deaths to raise the death toll to 496.

The actual number of positive cases is likely much higher since many people have not been tested and some who get infected don’t show symptoms, yet they can still spread the virus. The health department reported that 24,053 people have recovered from the virus.
